A Geological Feature of North Central Ohio

The Plains lay south and west of the Sandusky
River, bounded by the Olentangy River on the
east and Tymochtee Creek on the west. The local
black prairie soils mark the extent of the
grasslands, which were uncommon in the dense
eastern forests. Bur Oak trees, from the period
of the Wyandot Indians, have survived because
their thick bark protected them from the
common prairie grass fires. This remnant of
wilderness—Bur Oak Grove and Tall Grass
Prairie—is protected from cultivation, which would
destroy most of the native plant species.
