100 Stories

As we look to the future, we celebrate our centennial by paying tribute to the forest itself and the thousands of people who have appreciated and helped preserve it over the past hundred years. We want to hear your stories, and we’ll be asking for submissions throughout the coming year.

In Our Backyard

Conveniently located off Hwy 75 and just minutes away from downtown Omaha, Fontenelle Forest and Neale Woods are National Natural Landmarks right in our backyard. Each year, hundreds of people volunteer their time to support the organization and 80,000 people come to hike the 26 miles of maintained trails, play and explore the 2,000 acres of upland and lowland forest, native prairies, wetlands, lakes and waterways, and experience the classes, camps and other programs offered through Fontenelle.
