Originally dedicated December 8, 2004, the 210-acre natural area in Fleming County adjacent to the state park protects the northernmost occurrence of the federally endangered Short’s goldenrod (Solidago shortii). Other than a recently discovered population near the Blue River in southern Indiana, all documented occurrences of this endemic species are from a two-square-mile area around Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park covering portions of three counties (Fleming, Nicholas and Robertson) in Kentucky. The preserve is managed to enhance habitat for the goldenrod.
