Annual Report, 2022

This blog post may not be my most exciting.  The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Annual Report for 2022 has been published, and I want to call attention to that.  You can see it here:


Yes, it is a typical annual report.  No, it is not the most exciting reading.  However, I know that folks ask a lot of questions about the “nuts and bolts” of our agency.  That annual report will answer some of those questions.

If you look at the report, I believe one thing you will notice about the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission is that we do an incredible diversity of jobs.  I would dare say that there can be hardly a Nebraska resident who is not impacted by what we do at the Game & Parks Commission.

Let me also say this, and I hope it is conveyed in the annual report:  There ain’t a one of us who is doing this for the money.  For one thing, the money is not that great.  We do it because it is what we love.  The fish, wildlife and parkland resources of Nebraska are near and dear to our hearts.  We have dedicated our lives to protecting and enhancing those resources.  No, we are not perfect.  We will make mistakes.  But, you will not find anyone more passionate about what we do.  We are proud of that job and I hope that also is conveyed in the annual report.  There are not a lot of details in an annual report.  If you want details, all you have to do is ask one of us!
