LINCOLN, Neb. – Family Nature Club is a monthly event for children and adults to encourage discovery of the wonders of nature. The first session, Dec. 4 in Scottsbluff, will focus on birds.
Delanie Bruce, educator for the Bird Conservatory of the Rockies, will lead the program at 10 a.m. at the Elks Shelter at Riverside Park. Participants will learn about bird adaptations for surviving Nebraska’s winters, bird songs and field identification, and a mini-bird count along the North Platte River.
A different program will be presented each month with interactive nature explorations and outdoor skills activities. Each family group will receive its own Exploration Kit to use during the series to investigate the nature around them and to complete challenges at home between sessions.
The other sessions are Jan. 8, Feb. 5, March 5, April 2, May 7, and June 4. Registration is required at birdconservancy.doubleknot.com/event/so-fly-birds-family-nature-club/2863437.
The club is offered for free through funding from the Nebraska Environmental Trust and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
