The Nebraska Nature and Visitor Center (NNVC) is pleased to offer summertime "Weekend Wild Walks" for families.
Every Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. beginning June 18 through August 20 visitors are invited to take in nature along our trails, within our woods and near or even in the Platte River! Each walk will have a theme: birds, butterflies, wildflowers, amphibians, the Platte River are all themes we will explore.
The center will announce the theme for each walk 2-3 days in advance, via the Green Shoe diaries blog, accessible from NNVC's website (www.nebraskanature.org
"Speaking of the river, we could get a bit wet with some of these activities, and we'll let folks know if they need to dress accordingly."
Glomski emphasizes these walks are for families; children under the age of 13 must come with a parent or guardian.
Weekend Wild Walks start at 9:30 a.m. and end around 11:00 a.m. While admission to the walks is free, donations are greatly appreciated.
In addition to monitoring the center's blog and Facebook page, visitors may call (308) 382-1820 for more information.
Located on the I-80 Alda exit 305, the Nebraska Nature & Visitor Center exists to provide a place where people of all ages can connect to nature along the Platte River.
