Research finds new home at a century-old barn moved to UNO's Allwine Prairie Preserve
On Thursday, Jan. 12 a barn and silo was moved from their current location at 180th and Ida streets to Allwine Prairie Preserve, located at 148thh and State streets. As a part of the ongoing effort by the University of Nebraska at Omaha to improve the use and sustainability of its diverse Omaha-area prairie preserve for education and enjoyment of future generation and area residents, the bran will be renovated to include a state-of-the-art fields lab, classroom, kitchen and library. The barn will be connected via a walkway to the silo, which will be redesigned as a lookout tower. For full press release click here.
