Field Trip to Cuming City Cemetery
August 11, 2018

 

The historical marker pictured below needs updating. Here’s current information:
The marker indicates Dana College is the owner. With Dana’s demise, ownership reverted to the Nature Conservancy. TNC recently transferred it to the Audubon Society of Omaha which will now be responsible for management of this 11 acre gem.

 

 

Our host Glenn Pollock, NENPS Board and Audubon Society member, will be involved in developing a land management plan for this property which is in the preliminary stages. Glenn, who has probably been involved in ID and management of more cemetery prairies than most of us could think of, would like to share it with us in exchange for our insight and suggestions regarding site inventory and management.

 

Directions: The site is about 3 miles northwest of Blair. Parking at the cemetery is extremely limited as the entrance is on a busy blacktop with ditches/steep grades and no shoulders. Glenn suggests meeting at the Blair Memorial Hospital parking lot at 9:30 AM and car pooling the remaining 2 miles to Cuming City. The hospital is on the west side of Highway 75 at 810 North 22nd St.

 

Looking forward to seeing you on August 11.
