Hanley Savanna

Hanley Savanna is a landscape level prairie restoration that has taken place over the past seven years. Initiated by the Northwest Illinois Prairie Enthusiasts in 2003, this site has restored several types of native prairie. The site connects the Lost Mound Unit of the Upper Mississippi River U.S. Fish & Wildlife Refuge with the Hanover Bluff Complex. This connection has created a complex of natural areas from the bluff tops down through the Mississippi River. It is a site for nature, where people are welcome, with marked hiking trails throughout the site. An excellent area to observe native prarie plants and grassland birds.
