Nine-Mile Hilltop

LOOKING Closer

Nine Mile Prairie is one of the largest remaining patches of unaltered tallgrass prairie left in eastern Nebraska. Most of the original prairie in the Great Plains was turned over with plows to create farm ground, and less than 1% has survived in its original state. A functioning prairie provides home to hundreds of species of plants, birds, insects, and mammals. Nine Mile Prairie is owned and managed by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and is an important research site for ecologists and grassland managers.
