Schide, who described the prairie as a “magical thing,” said the wildflowers are six to eight-feet tall, creating a cave-like feel as visitors drive by or walk through. Among the blooming plants are prairie cone flowers, bee balm and brown and black-eyed Susan.

The super bloom will be at its peak for another week Schide said. She suggests visitors take the mile-long trail that borders the Little Miami River to see the prairie. It can also be seen from Lower Bellbrook Road and the parking lot.
Professional photographers visiting the prairie must fill out a commercial photography and film permit to take photos.
Morris Reserve is the newest addition to the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Park District park system. The 177 acres of woodland, prairies and meadows was acquired in 2016 from the Morris Family who owned the land for 198 years.
