Sauer Family Prairie Kame Forest Preserve
Sugar Grove, IL
The Sauer Family Prairie Kame is named after the Sauer family, longtime residents and public servants of Sugar Grove. The preserve is an isolated landmark sentinel overlooking the extensive outwashed plains to the southwest. It is a prairie covered, assorted gravel pile around 30' high, situated on the leading edge of the great glaciers that moved through and retreated from this area some 12,000 years ago. It is visited by science classes, for it is regarded as one of the best examples remaining of this glacial form.
