Homestead National Historical Park is a great place to conduct research! The monument is home to the Nation's Second Oldest Restored Tallgrass Prairie, lowland burr oak forest and over one mile of Cub Creek.

The Heartland Inventory and Monitoring Network takes inventory of the species and natural features in its parks including Homestead, and then monitors them over time to see how they're doing.
