Owens Fen State Nature Preserve is a small, high-quality prairie fen community that supports shrubby cinquefoil (Dasiphora fruticosa), queen-of-the-prairie (Filipendula rubra), Riddell’s goldenrod (Solidago riddellii), spiked blazing star (Liatris spicata), and state-listed plants such as white wand-lily (Zigadenus elegans).
The preserve is dedicated in honor of David B. Owens, a naturalist and former volunteer for the Division. His generous gift enabled the purchase of critical portions of this preserve, formerly known at Liberty Fen.
