Inscription.  
This museum's eastern meadow environment consists of abundant grasses, wildflowers, and shrubs. Several of the plants are perennials and live many years, growing or lying dormant with the seasons. Native traditional healers use meadows as important sources of medicinal plants. They give thanks for the plants they harvest by offering tobacco, song, or prayer.

Meadows are a type of grassland ecosystem and cover approximately 19% of the earth's surface. They help clean and regulate water in rivers, lakes, and streams.

[Spanish translation:]
En la pradera del este del museo abundan los pastos, las flores silvestres y los arbustos. Varias de las plantas son perennes y viven durante muchos años, creciendo o permaneciendo inactivas según la temporada. Las praderas son una importante fuente de las plantas medicinales para los sanadores indígenas tradicionales. Estos dan las gracias por las plantas que cosechan ofreciendo tobaco, cantos u oraciones.

La pradera es un tipo de ecosistema de pastizal y cubre aproximadamente 19% de la superficie terrestre. Sirve de ayuda para limpiar
