LINCOLN, Neb. – Inspired by a similar national event, Nebraska Wildflower Week is a celebration of wildflowers and native plants in the wild and in the landscape through an array of events and activities across Nebraska May 29-June 7.

The Nebraska Statewide Arboretum coordinates Wildflower Week activities, bringing together organizations and individuals across the state who recognize the value of wildflowers – not only for their beauty but also for what they imply and symbolize. “Where wildflowers are thriving, it is a sign that the environment is healthy,” said Bob Henrickson, whose nursery production work with the arboretum focuses on native and regionally appropriate plants.

Opportunities for wildflower enthusiasts across the state include walking tours, presentations on wildflower identification, propagation and landscape use; botanical illustration workshops and plant sales.
