Baker Prairie Natural Area is a remnant of what was once a 5,000-acre tallgrass prairie located west and south of present day downtown Harrison. It is the largest known remnant of Ozark Mountain prairie occurring on a chert substrate. The prairie harbors a number of species of animals and plants of special concern in Arkansas. Due to its location within the city limits of Harrison, local development could impact the integrity of the natural area. The area is managed cooperatively with an adjacent tract owned by The Nature Conservancy (TNC).
