In 1959, Arthur and Antoinette Allwine donated their 160 acre farm at 144th & State Streets to the University of Omaha. Now known as the Allwine Prairie Preserve, the facility grew by 83 acres Wednesday (5-26) with the official dedication ceremonies. Preserve director Tom Bragg, Chancellor John Christensen and Natural Resources District board chair Jim Thompson spoke at the ceremony. UNO author John Price and UNO's The Moving Company also performed. A rehabilitated hawk also was released to fly above the preserve.
