We couldn’t let the Parks’ centennial pass without sharing our love of the outdoors through education! We have several exciting learning opportunities planned for students to share their love of the great outdoors. Be sure to check back with us throughout 2021 as we’ll add resources as they become available.
Bring parks into the classroom
Connect students with our state park system through fun activities that are aligned with state standards for learning.
These resources offer K–6 teachers the opportunity to integrate the Nebraska State Park Centennial into curricula, lessons and activities.
Find 100 birds
We’re calling on birders to find and identify 100 bird species in Nebraska Game and Park areas by the end of 2021.
Explore a state park, state recreation area, state historical park or wildlife management area to spot birds and log them using eBird or iNaturalist.
Once completed, participants should email their bird list from iNaturalist or ebird to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit our education centers
At the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, we’re dedicated to growing people’s passion for the outdoors, wildlife, conservation and outdoor recreation. We offer a suite of opportunities from wildlife education centers to mobile education “trunks,” outdoors skills buildings to shooting ranges — for people of all ages.
Soak up learning
We want everyone to love Nebraska’s amazing wildlife, plants and natural resources as much as we do. Knowing how people want to engage with education is as diverse as our natural resources, we have developed a variety of interactive resources, including “The Science Of” video series, citizen science projects, Pinterest activities and more.
