Mima Mounds NAP
Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve (NAP) supports a mysterious, mounded landscape due to its unique topography. This site was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1968 by the National Park Service. The 637-acre site protects the best remaining example of the unusual rolling "mima mound" prairie landscape.
