Other remnants are probably persisting beneath second growth woodland southwest and south of the pond. Only those areas with recognizable prairie vegetation are mapped here.
Prairie remnants at CERA have not been systematically monitored. Our knowledge of their biological diversity is limited to observations made through periodic visits. The visits are made primarily to assess management needs and to record plant and bird species present. Minimal restoration work has been done in areas containing remnants with the exception of the western 1/3 of the South Slope Savanna. A burn program was initiated for remnants south of the pond in 2002. Previous to that, summer interns had worked in the 1980s to remove brush and trees, particularly from the remnant closest to the southwest end of the pond.
