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.
Centennial video challenge
Become the next nature video influencer!
Through our State Park Centennial Video Challenge, students in grades 6 through 12 are invited to share their favorite state park memory with digital media. Submit a 1- to 2-minute video about your favorite memory that includes the people, places or experiences that make it memorable.
Check back in early 2021 for more competition details.
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.
