Stars, Strolls & S’mores event scheduled in Norfolk area this summer

LINCOLN, Neb. – Participate in Stars, Strolls & S’mores and discover outdoor and nature opportunities in the Norfolk area.

This series includes three Moon Walk events held on Wednesday evenings close to the full moon. Each Moon Walk begins at 7:30 p.m., requires a mile of walking, and lasts up to two hours. The Moon Walk includes an introduction, a hike to a designated area for presentations, and a snack of s’mores.

“The purpose of the Moon Walk is to provide a family-oriented activity that introduces the cultural and natural history of our area trails and lakes,” said Traci Jeffrey, director of the Norfolk Area Visitors Bureau.

The schedule is:

May 30 – At Wood Duck Wildlife Management Area in Stanton County, presentations will be a wild herb walk, frogs and toads of Nebraska, and night photography.

June 27 – At Maskenthine Lake Recreation Area in Stanton County, presentations will be on native plants for native pollinators, fireflies, and star gazing.

July 25 – At the Cowboy Trail trailhead at Ta-Ha-Zouka Park in Norfolk, presentations will be on owls of Nebraska, geocaching and kayaking.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District, and Norfolk Area Visitors Bureau are hosting the event.
