Story of River Otter Success to Be Told in Lincoln

LINCOLN – Learn about Nebraska’s successful reintroduction of the river otter at a free program Jan. 29 at the Nebraska Game and Parks Outdoor Education Center in Lincoln.

Sam Wilson, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s furbearer and carnivore program manager, will tell how river otters once flourished in the state before being eliminated by unrestricted harvest and land-use changes. The river otter has expanded its population across much of the state since reintroductions began in 1986.

The program begins at 7 p.m. at the center, which is located at 4703 N. 44th St.
