Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch

Learn more about this exciting project!

First conceptualized as part of the Lincoln-Lancaster County 2040 Comprehensive Plan, the Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch is a tallgrass prairie passage and trail that will build on Lincoln's nationally recognized trail and greenway system and link two of Lincoln and Lancaster County's premier environmental resource and education centers. It will follow the Haines Branch of Salt Creek from the Pioneers Park Nature Center to Conestoga Lake State Recreation Area, and extend south through the Village of Denton and on to Spring Creek Prairie.

This project celebrates our natural heritage and will be a legacy for future generations. It is being implemented by a public/private partnership, with majority of funds coming from grants and private donations.
