Benedict Prairie is a unique remnant located along a right-of-way on the old Kenosha-Silver Lake-Beloit branch of the Chicago Northwestern Railroad. The original vegetation is described by UW-Milwaukee Professor Philip Whitford in this pamphlet. Participants should wear layers, sturdy boots, work gloves, and eye protection (sunglasses or safety glasses). Water is also recommended.
