Educator Events

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission is canceling all group events and programs through May 31, 2020, or until further notice. This includes our NASP events, the Fort Kearny Expo, NOEC events, community fishing events, Schramm Education Center events, wildlife brewery events, hunter education courses, the outdoor discovery program, park events, or any other event that requires a gathering of individuals. Nebraska State Parks and recreation areas remain open for day-use and camping.

The Nebraska Game & Parks Commission’s Fish & Wildlife Education Division is hosting several interactive talks, craft nights, trivia nights, and fun learning opportunities at breweries in Southeast Nebraska this year. Join us as we learn about our natural resources, animals, and of course ecological education!
