The Science of…Prairie Plants
September 9, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Nebraska’s nearly 1,500 species of native plants occupy habitats ranging from eastern Nebraska tallgrass prairies to Sandhill wetlands to dry rocky outcrops in the Panhandle. Though many of these species are common and widespread, many are restricted to unique habitats such as Sandhill fens and alkaline marshes. Nearly 400 plant species are considered at-risk in the state, while only seven species are listed as federally or state threatened or endangered. In this episode come learn about a few of our native plants, and wildflowers and what makes them perfectly adapted to living in Nebraska’s often harsh environmental conditions!
