Explore the Great Plains ecosystem, home to many unique plants and animals. Get up close to these ecosystems in this live interactive program where we will “walk” students through our Cherish
Nebraska
 exhibit to investigate plants and animals using the perspectives of geology, zoology, and
biology. We will apply their knowledge
as we explore a final “neighborhood” diorama.

Explore Natural History: University of Nebraska State Museum

Lincoln, NE
United States

Sparking people's interest in the natural world and preserving it for future generations. That is our philosophy at the University of Nebraska State Museum. Established in 1871, the University
of Nebraska State Museum is an active research museum. We are known for our paleontological
collections, especially our iconic hall of ancient elephants, yet we also
maintain over 13 million specimens, ethnographic and archeological
objects. 
The museum is focused on promoting discovery in natural science, and
fostering scientific understanding and interpretation of the Earth’s
past, present and future through world-class exhibits, collections,
special events, and education. The Museum is a
proud Smithsonian Affiliate and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

Program Details

Format

1. Introduction to the Cherish Nebraska Gallery
2. We begin by defining prairie and ecosystem.
3. Next, we meet prairie inhabitants and discuss the ways that they fit into the prairie ecosystem.
4. As we walk throughout the exhibit, we will explore different types of prairie terrain that can be found on the Great Plains.
5. We will end with an “I spy” game to see how many prairie residents you can spot in one diorama.

Objectives

Participants will:
- define what makes a prairie
- learn of three distinct eco-systems
- identify prairie residents (birds, animals, plants) and how they fit into the prairie ecosystem
