Join Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and Nebraska Game and Parks for a weekend filled with self exploration around Nebraska’s Panhandle! This weekend-long event is the perfect time to further explore your backyard, neighborhood, or Nebraska state park areas to investigate the diversity of plants, animals, insects, and more that call the panhandle home. We will give you the tips & tools to become a community scientist as you identify the flora & fauna around the Nebraska Panhandle!
REGISTER NOW! The first 75 registrants will receive an Exploration Kit (limit one per group or family or person) filled with field guides, investigation tools, activity sheets and more! You must register by noon on April 26th, or until kits run out, if you would like to receive an Exploration Kit.
This is a FREE event that you can participate in at your own pace throughout the weekend. Registration is required to participate: https://zoom.us/…/tJAlf-yurT0pG9W64A-OyHxtOaSizEiyEFMZ
