Inscription.

The tallgrass prairies of Nebraska stood in stark contrast to the forested homelands of the explorers. Dense grasses, some taller than a man, covered the land. Lewis and Clark noted beauty in the vast reaches of waist-high grarsses, a beauty beyond picturesque scenery.

Lush grasses suggested fertile soils and the promise of bountiful farmlands for a growing country. Today, these promises fulfilled, less than one percent of the original tallgrass prairie remains to inspire us as it did Lewis and Clark.
