Woolsey Wet Prairie Sanctuary (WWPS) is a wetland mitigation site
adjacent to Fayetteville's West Side Wastewater Treatment Facility.
WWPS is a former seasonal wetland associated with Tallgrass Prairie
habitat. The area is open and attractive to birds otherwise hard to find
in an urban environment. WWPS consists of a series of shallow wet
cells separated by earthen berms. The many ‘islands’ are actually
prairie mounds that are a natural feature of unplowed or moderately
plowed former prairies. Native plant diversity is very high and Osage
burrowing crawfish, an endemic species associated with seasonal
wetlands, are common. The earthen berms provide a good walking
surface throughout the 40-plus acres.
