Prairie Plains Resource Institute

Prairie Plains Resource Institute has been celebrating the land and its people since 1980! A nonprofit educational land trust, we’re dedicated to creating opportunities on the land for people of all ages. We offer a full calendar of events on our eight Nebraska prairie preserves, consultation for landowners and agencies regarding high-diversity prairie restoration, an award-winning nature day camp for elementary students and much, much more.

Social hour begins at 5 p.m., dinner at 6 p.m., along with live and silent auctions and live music by the Prairie Plains Band. Email  for more information.
