|Facility:||Allwine Prairie Preserve|
|Description:||Allwine Prairie Preserve is a 160 acre reestablished grassland research area situated northwest of Omaha in Douglas County, Nebraska, that was donated to the University of Nebraska at Omaha Biology Department in 1959 by Arthur A. Allwine. In 1970, 130 acres were seeded with native tallgrass prairie species; an additional 7 acres were seeded to mixed-grass species. Management during the course of establishment included various combinations of fire and mowing to simulate historical effects of widespread fire and grazing on tallgrass prairie.
Over 109 species of birds, 12 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 24 species of mammals have been observed in various locations throughout the Preserve.
