Explore the science behind common nature finds in six-part ‘Science Of’ series

LINCOLN, Nebraska — Hibernation. Protective fur, feathers or scales. Lichens.

On the surface, these topics may all seem unrelated, but each is a part of a six-week virtual webinar series, “The Science Of”, hosted by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. The series, taught by Game and Parks educators, starts Jan. 14 and will take place at 3 p.m. CST via Zoom.

  • Jan. 21: The Science of … Body Coverings
  • Jan. 28: The Science of … Turtles
  • Feb. 4: The Science of … Mosses and Lichens
  • Feb. 11: The Science of … Threatened and Endangered Species
  • Feb. 18: The Science of … Wetlands
