Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is dedicated to educating all Nebraskans about our state’s amazing wildlife, plants and natural resources. Knowing how people want to engage with education is as diverse as our natural resources, we have developed a variety of interactive resources.
These free, downloadable lesson plans provide fun and engaging learning activities on a variety of topics — from birds to prairies, animals to pollinators … and some just-for-fun activities, too!
Looking for some fun craft activities to encourage children to combine a love for exploring in nature with their creative side? Then the Nebraska Game and Parks’ Pinterest page is just what you are looking for. Be sure to follow us for new activities daily.
Wild What’s Up
Head out to your backyard, local park or state park area to explore. You’ll find lots of amazing things (and make plenty of memories, too!). While you are exploring, you’ll likely find things you are curious about and maybe don’t have an answer for. So send us your nature-related questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. One of our dedicated educators will email you back with an answer to your question. Each week, we’ll pick a few of the best to be featured on our video series (Coming Soon).
Like our Project WILD Facebook page and get daily updates on what is going on in nature. We’ll highlight a different wonder of nature each day to show you Nature Rocks!
Join us as we explore the wild world of nature. From adaptations and phenology to life cycles and pollination, we’ll discover it all! Each mini-series will explore one topic in-depth to provide a well-rounded investigation and help students critically think about the topic. COMING SOON!
Looking for a way to engage in nature AND help scientists at the same time? Then citizen science is for you. Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has several citizen science projects ready for your help!
Available to download and print for free, these regional wildlife identification guides can aid in your exploration of Nebraska’s diversity of plant and animal species.
