Eugene T. Mahoney State Park’s James Family Conservatory will be closed temporarily starting July 20 for the start of a yearlong construction project.
The closure will accommodate the addition of the new Nature Center and Outdoor Education Classroom, a Venture Parks project.
The tentative completion of the new project will be summer 2023. The addition will be the park’s new home base for outdoor education activities.
“This new addition will help us expand our education programs for park guests and students, helping to teach outdoor skills and grow knowledge about nature,” Superintendent Jake Rodiek said. “This will be a great place to engage our next generation of park guests.”
Venture Parks are an innovative public/private partnership that brings unique experiences and amenities to four popular state parks and recreation areas along the Platte River: Mahoney State Park, Platte River State Park, Schramm Park State Recreation Area and Louisville State Recreation Area. Thanks to supportive donors, venture parks invite park guests to explore, learn and play and get in touch with nature in new interactive ways. Learn more at OutdoorNebraska.org/ventureparks.
