Nebraska Wildflower Week is celebrated a month later than National Wildflower Week to highlight the prairie wildflowers that bloom at this time of year. Spring snowstorm moisture has given the wildflowers a head start for blooming during Nebraska Wildflower Week and on through the summer.

On May 31, as a continuation of the popular Niobrara Meanderings series there will be a Ranger talk and walk beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the theater then continuing on one of the trails.   

Visitors are encouraged to walk the trails on their own using plant signs identifying plants on the trails and the herbarium in the visitor center to aid their identification of the blooming wildflowers.

Several wildflower books are available in the Oregon Trail Museum Association bookstore located in the visitor center.
