 A Network of Campuses

Whether it's kids discovering, scientists researching or families spending time together, we provide places that allow people to enjoy the land.

Prairie Plains Resource Institute has pioneered grassland management and educational activities on its network of seven native prairie preserves, beginning at a time when few such preserves existed in central Nebraska. (The Great Plains has very few land trust organizations and very little public land.) Since 1983 Prairie Plains has received gifts of six exceptional prairie natural areas and has purchased one other site (PPRI also added to a donated site with a purchase). These seven preserves encompassing 5800 acres are representative samples of the North American grassland ecosystem and we invite you to experience the unique beauty that each site has to offer.
