Prairie Plains Resource Institute

Prairie Plains Resource Institute has been celebrating the land and its people since 1980! A nonprofit educational land trust, we’re dedicated to creating opportunities on the land for people of all ages. We offer a full calendar of events on our seven Nebraska prairie preserves, consultation for landowners and agencies regarding high-diversity prairie restoration, an award-winning nature day camp for elementary students and much, much more.

Prairie Plains Fun Run

Please join us June 3, 2017, for a Prairie Fun Run/Walk! June is a beautiful time of year to see the rolling hills and Platte River views of Gjerloff Prairie. 5K and 10K available and walkers are welcome. Download a registration form here, and we'll see you on the trail!

Happy Birthday, SOAR!

Summer Orientation About Rivers (SOAR), our amazing nature day camp for 3rd through 6th graders, turns 25 this year! That's 25 years of getting kids outside for an up close look at the awesomeness of Central Nebraska and the Platte River. Check out photos of our fun-filled two weeks here. Happy Birthday, SOAR, and many more!
