We've partnered with our friends at the University of Nebraska 4H program to create a "Wild About 4H Pavilion" at the Nebraska State Fair held in Grand Island. We've met a lot of great people and have had a chance to visit about our Center and about wildlife in general. We have also partnered with Hastings College, Nebraska Game & Parks, the Wood Carvers of Grand Island, the Great Platte River Road Archway Monument, and Central Community College to provide program and activities. We've had a bunch of volunteers to help us get this done as well!
Here's few photos from our tent at the Nebraska State Fair.:
We had out river model "flume" on hand allowing kids and people of all ages to get their hands in the river and do a little engineering.

Dan Glomski was out showing people the sun in a way they may have never seen it. Lots of ooohs and aaahs there.
Our friends from the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission were on hand to teach about archery, scat and turkey behavior.
