Nebraska’s Grassland Legacy

April 6, 2021

The Center for Grassland Studies announces the release of Nebraska’s Grassland Legacy, a video that celebrates grasslands. Produced by Ethan Freese and Mariah Lundgren of the Platte Basin Timelapse project, the video tells the story of Nebraska grasslands with a brief review of the environmental and human factors driving current grassland systems.

The video may be used for multiple purposes. Educators at all levels may utilize the four-minute video to communicate the importance of grasslands and conservation issues associated with grasslands. Grassland enthusiasts may simply want to share it with others as an overview of grasslands. The Center will utilize the video to promote its programs and for recruiting students to the Center’s Grassland Systems degree program with its options in Grazing Livestock Systems or Grassland Ecology and Management.

Look for a longer video concentrating on tallgrass prairie and the Nine-Mile Prairie to be released later this year.
