Lamb Tallgrass Prairie
About this prairie
Lamb Prairie while only a small tract of 4 acres, has excellent diversification of tall grass prairie native grasses and forbs. Located south of the Big Nemaha River between Adams and Sterling, Nebraska on loess soils, it is dedicated to the late husband and son of Betty Lamb, a transplant from back east who loved her wildflowers.
We have been using fire and spot spraying to control sweet clover.
