Nebraska Roots: Trees and Native Plants

Upcoming Air Times


Located in the middle of the Great Plains, the Great American Desert, Nebraska has a reputation as treeless plain.  So how did we become the “Tree Planters State” and the home of Arbor Day?   In this one-hour program, we’ll explore the diversity in our state - from tallgrass prairies, to Ponderosa Pine forests, to rolling sandhills and vibrant fields of wildflowers.  Learn how homesteaders changed the landscape and why Nebraska’s history and future is rooted in our trees and native plants.
