Song of the Lark Meadow
The Song of the Lark Meadow is filled with beautiful wildflowers and other native Nebraska flowers and grasses. This native wild flowering meadow is named after the short story of the same name by Willa Cather, a well-known Nebraska author.

The colors of the meadow are ever-changing due to the diverse planting of native plants. Included in this meadow are black-eyed Susan, plains coreopsis, prairie grasses, dwarf red plains coreopsis, lemon mint, red corn poppy, yarrow and blanket flower.

“Startled”
Located in The Song of the Lark Meadow, this bronze sculpture depicts a buck that is startled by passersby. Kent Ullberg, a renowned artist who focuses on wildlife sculpture, created this piece. He also created “Spirit of Nebraska’s Wilderness,” which is part of a large sculpture display at the First National Bank plaza in downtown Omaha.
