I80 Mile Marker 1

State Line Rd. – 1.5 Miles South of Exit 1

Kimball County

Biologically Unique Landscape: Kimball County Grasslands

Looking for Butterflies: This mixed grass prairie and breaks supports a rich diverse population of grassland specialist skippers as well as a few Lycaenids that favor rocky outcroppings. This is probably the best site in the state to see Western Green Hairstreaks. This is also a popular location for birding.

Special Instructions: Exit at Mile Marker 1 and go south. Once you reach the rocky outcropping to the east search the roadway and extensive right of way back north and to the west. — 41°10’07.2″N 104°01’46.5″W
