Bauer-Wagner Road Show Heads to UNL’s NaturePalooza

Yes, you read it right! Daryl Bauer of the Game and Parks Commission’s Fisheries Division and I will be heading to UNL’s East Campus this Tuesday, Sept. 30th. We’ll be MCing and doing a short presentation at UNL’s popular NaturePalooza event from 7-7:15 p.m. The whole event runs from 3-8 p.m. at Hardin Hall, 33rd & Holdrege, and we’ll be walking around the venue ‘talkin shop’ (conservation, outdoor activities, etc.) and havin’ fun with you!


By now, you’re probably aware of NaturePalooza, but if you aren’t, here’s the news release about it that our Cara Pesek from Game and Parks did just last week.

Nature Palooza to bring the great outdoors to UNL’s East Campus

LINCOLN – Explore a snake pit, watch a live animal show, hold giant insects, learn how to make fishing lures and more during NaturePalooza, a free annual event designed to teach kids and families about nature through a variety of hands-on, fun activities. This year’s NaturePalooza will take place at Hardin Hall on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln East Campus on Tuesday, Sept. 30 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Other activities slated for the event include demonstrations on bats, bicycle repair, composting, recycling, owls and tree rings. Those who attend will also be able to make their own bird feeders, mammal tracks stamps, turkey calls and fishing lures, among other activities.

Food trucks will be available at the event, and the String Beans will provide musical entertainment. The event is sponsored by the UNL School of Natural Resources, with support from many other organizations, including the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? Will you and your family be attending? Great! Look for me wearing one of my various hats.


Who knows what Daryl Bauer will be wearing …
