Nacatoch Ravines Natural Area protects a continuum of plant communities that occur along the transition from
the upland blackland prairies to the low bottomlands along the Little River. It contains one of the largest, and most intact, examples of mesic (moderately moist), dry-mesic, and dry upland forests remaining in the northern part of the Coastal Plain. Through much of the site, canopy trees average 2 to 3 feet or more in diameter, with many larger individual trees.  It also includes blackland prairie remnants, hardwood flatwoods, wooded seeps, and supports several rare plant species. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) shares ownership on portions of this area.
