Another Junior Ranger badge awarded. I think this makes 33. We all learn so much, kids and parents alike, when we visit our national park sites! #juniorrangers #nationalparkservice #nps #roadschooling #homeschoolhistory #homeschoolfieldtrip #homesteadnm

#FastRepost from @homesteadnps by @fastrepost_app ••• | The Heritage Center at Homestead National Monument of America, which looks out over the 100 acres of restored prairie, was designed to suggest the shape of a plow breaking the land for farming. Other symbolic features of the building include the Living Wall, which is a representation of how much land was transferred to citizens from the public domain, and also the north wall inside the lobby, which is constructed to resemble the layers of sod found beneath the prairie. See these features for yourself on your next visit to Homestead National Monument of America! www.nps.gov/home | #HomesteadNM #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS100 #FunFact #FunFactFriday
Thank you to @homesteadnps for hosting the field portion of MWAC's training last week and to @nebraskahistory for lending their expertise during our field exercise!

| Have you explored the woodland loop at Homestead National Monument of America? This portion of the trail system at Homestead gives you a chance to step inside a rare ribbon of lowland burr oak forest that offered security to homesteaders in the form of resources that allowed for building a home, fence, fuel to burn, and animals to hunt. Come explore this area today! Stop into either visitor center to get a map of the trail system before heading out. | #Homesteading #HomesteadNM #FindYourPark #Trails #MidwestNationalParks #NationalParks #NPS101 #Homestead
| The first Ranger hats were soft felt hats similar to those worn by the U.S. Army and the Texas Rangers in the 1800's. They had creases in the front and back of the hat creating four dents that formed a peak, nicknamed the "Montana peak" because it resembled the glacier peaks of Montana. | #HomesteadNM #NPS101 #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS
"Mind blown" after seeing the Corona. #eclipse2017 #HomesteadNM #fermilab
No picture will ever do it justice. But, this was one of the most humbling, awe-inspiring experience.
Total solar eclipse 2017. #totality #HomesteadNM #amazing #nationalparks
Our #2017solareclipse adventure. No pictures of the eclipse itself since I could never do it justice but pic 4 is the area we were sitting that shows how dark it got. #darknessovertheprairie #homesteadnm Oh and Bill Nye was there!
You could have chosen anywhere in America, but you chose HERE. Deepest gratitude to the one and only science guy for joining us at the monument, for graciously signing this book, for my childhood memories, for your tireless work on behalf of #science and rationality and this beautiful planet. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU @billnye !!! #everythingallatonce #eclipse2017 #homesteadnationalmonument #nebraska #homesteadnm #nationalparks #findyourpark @homesteadnps
Un-eclipsed sun, slightly eclipsed sun, almost total eclipsed sun, and partially eclipsed sun after totality. #eclipse2017 #homesteadnm #totaleclipseofthepark #darknessovertheprairie
We recently explored Homestead National Monument of America in Beatrice. We love National Parks and we were excited to realize that we have a site that's just an hour drive from Lincoln. The monument is located on the first land that was claimed under the Homestead Act of 1862. We hiked the trails that led through the restored prairie and tried to imagine the struggles of making a home there and living off of the land. The site also has a visitor's center whose unique architecture was designed to reflect the appearance of a plow moving through soil. Inside you'll find exhibitions related to the lives of the first homesteaders and a gift shop. We're looking forward to visiting again soon. They are currently hosting a film festival honoring Nebraska's heritage in celebration of the state's 150th sesquicentennial. ⛏🌾🇺🇸 . . . @homesteadnps @midwest.nps @nationalparkservice #homesteadnm #beatricenebraska #nebraska #visitnebraska #negameandparks #iheartthegreatplains #explorenebraska #midwestnationalparks #nationalparks #findyourpark #optoutside #ne150 #nemiles #midwestmoment #hkscoutsne2017 #hkscoutsbeatrice #hkscoutsneoutdoors #hkscoutsnemuseums #hkscoutsnearchitecture
