GERING, Neb. – A virtual program from the Wildcat Hills Nature Center will explore the traditions and celebrations of the spring equinox. The program will be 10 a.m. MST on Saturday, March 13.
The spring equinox, which is the astronomical first day of spring in the northern hemisphere, is March 20 this year. After the equinox, the northern half of the globe will begin tilting closer to the sun.
Amanda Filipi, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission outdoor education specialist who is presenting the program, hopes the educational opportunity will spark new traditions for families who participate.
