The Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands are located in Nebraska and South Dakota. It is made up of two national forests, three national grasslands, the historic Charles E. Bessey Tree Nursery, and is host to a Job Corps facility.
There is an unusual combination of the native ponderosa pine forest of the Nebraska and Samuel R. McKelvie National Forests and mixed grass prairies on the Buffalo Gap, Fort Pierre, and Oglala National Grasslands. Hand-planted forests within the Nebraska Sandhills with their combined grassland and forest are unique to the National Forest System.
A variety of recreation and natural resources makes this a perfect place to explore and enjoy your National Forests.
