Wildcat Hills Nature Center

As Nebraska’s state parks prepare for the fall season, some are adjusting their activity hours because of a limited workforce.

As schools return to session and park staffing levels become more limited, park managers must reduce hours of operation and services. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission encourages its patrons to call ahead before visiting a park to check on activity times and availability to ensure a great park experience.
