It protects one of the last remaining tracts of northern tallgrass prairie in Minnesota, with large areas of big bluestem, Indian grass, and switchgrass. The prairie ignites with wildflowers during the spring and supports numerous grassland dependent wildlife species, such as grasshopper sparrows, greater prairie chicken, and Dakota skipper.
Hunters should head south to the Big Slough State Wildlife Management Area, which lies a short drive from the town of Slayton. Used for agricultural purposes during the 1940s, the wetlands were restored to their natural habitat in the 1990s, attracting a variety of birdlife, waterfowl, and pheasants. White-tailed deer and a variety of small game species also inhabit the Big Slough State Wildlife Management Area, with a walking trail along the dike offering the best sightings.

Slayton serves as the seat of Murray County and is home to the Murray County Historical Museum, which details the people and events that have shaped the region.

Another museum not to miss in the region is the End-O-Line Railroad Park and Museum, which occupies an old railway depot in the town of Currie.
