Strub Prairie, a small but diverse native prairie remnant harbors over 100 native species in the 1.08 acre preserve with 1/3 acre conservation easement adjoining it. This land is along an abandoned railroad right of way at the northeast corner of Highway 382 and Polk Avenue at 1554 Polk Avenue NE, Solon, IA 52333. The land once housed a propane storage business owned by Bud Strub. It was affectionately known as “propane prairie.” Bud made the purchase of this remnant possible in 2006.
