In Praise of Wild Places
The Arboretum promotes statewide Wildflower Week events & resources that celebrate the value of native plants. Wildflowers endure tough weather, lending beauty and brightness even to landscapes rarely seen by humans. They feed birds, butterflies and other wildlife; their roots loosen and improve soil; and they lend fragrance and beauty to wild places, making us take a closer look at places we might otherwise ignore.
Watch for events this week around the state. Check here for event listings: https://plantnebraska.org/connect/events/wildflowers.html.
