Homestead National Monument is a place of rich history connecting us to our pioneer heritage. It’s also the home of our exquisite natural legacy. Homestead offers a glimpse of what our tallgrass prairies and lowland bur oak forests looked like hundreds of years before settlement.
The Nebraska Conservation Education Fund (NCEF) and Homestead National Monument encourage the public to join them on a guided hike along Cub Creek at Homestead, March 10th at 10 a.m.
Led by NCEF Conservation Director, Adam Hintz, the goal of the hike is to help community members enjoy the outdoors, especially the prairies and woodlands in the winter. Special focus will be on birds and Cub Creek.
The hike will begin and end at the education building, 8523 Nebraska Hwy 4, a little less than 4 miles west of Beatrice on Hwy 4.
