Preserving Nature through Plant Press
Have you ever seen such a beautiful flower that you wanted to keep it forever? Join Ranger Shannon from Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail as she shows you how through plant presses. Plant pressing is easy to do; all you need are a few simple supplies from your home! She'll take you through how to make your own plant presses as she discusses some of Nebraska's native prairie plants and flowers that you could use.
