  • Board President Cliff Dill's remarks from the Groundbreaking Ceremony - Prairie Plains Resource Institute
    come forth It pleases me greatly to know that the inspirations we gain from those experiences will be passed on to future generations Many of us are lucky to have been graced with an appreciation of this land and its heritage It amazes me knowing the profound effect mankind has had on the appearance of much of this planet over the past few hundred years that as we look out on this bluff today other than a power line a few fences several introduced weed species and an abundance of trees along the river this bluff looks very similar to what it looked like 100 or even 2 or 300 years ago Prairie Plains is a grass roots organization It s the most grass roots organization I have ever known or experienced After receiving their education Bill and Jan returned to their hometown of Aurora Somehow a spark was kindled and the idea of Prairie Plains began to take form Over the intervening 26 years since its inception Bill and Jan have invested their lives in this organization in more ways than most of us will ever know As much as we owe to Bill and Jan for their tireless efforts over those 26 years PPRI is more than just its founders It s an organization of people many people We re made up of our membership our supporters and our friends And it s only through the commitment efforts and monies of these people and groups that our organization has survived and flourished To my wife Jeanne and I the measurement of the effectiveness of this grass roots organization is best realized kid by kid farmer by farmer bird by bird rancher by rancher wildflower by wildflower seed by seed and acre by acre This building for which we break ground today is a monument to all those individual efforts Prairie Plains Resource Institute is about planting seeds both in a literal and symbolic sense It s about bringing people and communities together and celebrating the land and the heritage of the people who have lived worked and played here I have a marvelous image in my mind from the first Prairie Festival that we celebrated here on PPRI s 25th anniversary about a year and a half ago On a Friday evening in May over 300 people gathered and wandered these bluffs The most common remark I heard was I didn t know anything like this existed Through this building and with the help of you and many many others we will help countless others to realize not only that this wonderful place does exist but to gain a greater understanding of why it is here what can be done to preserve it and hopefully to be inspired by it With one exception I m not going to mention any individuals but I would like to thank the Nebraska Environmental Trust for their generous grant that allowed us to purchase the property I d like to thank the
