Nebraska Game and Parks to host Family Nature Club in Norfolk

LINCOLN, Neb. – Norfolk-area families are invited to engage in natural play outdoors at Family Nature Club.

Family Nature Club is scheduled May 24, June 4, June 25, July 2, July 30, Aug. 6 and Aug. 20. It will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Outdoor Classroom at the Northeast District Office in Norfolk, 2201 N. 13th St.

At the Outdoor Classroom, participants can climb a tree, dig for bones, make a sandcastle, turn over rocks to learn what lies beneath, build a fort, or slide into the mud pit.

“Everyone needs an evening of unstructured old-fashioned play,” said Jamie Bachmann, a wildlife education assistant with the Northern Prairies Land Trust. “Bring the family and enjoy or revisit childhood the way it should be – a little dirty.”

Contact Bachmann for more information at jamie.bachmann@nebraska.gov or 402-370-3374.
