Family Camp Week 4

Today’s families are in crisis. They are often fragmented and frazzled. They need to have time together and fun together! Both the parents and kids feel the stress of living in a cross-pressured world, where our computer and mobile phone screens have disconnected us from each other and pulled us away from the moorings of faith by a secular culture. While many parents struggle to pay the bills, kids are lured into social media, games, and activities that take them away from home. The result is a loss of a family’s most important thing: quality time together.  Family Camp is one of the few places where time can be set aside to help parents and kids navigate the cross winds of our culture and navigate the pressures that everyone feels.

CONSERVATION CAREER CHAT- Private Lands Biologist-VIRTUAL-NGP

We’ve all heard the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Many times the answer is a doctor, a lawyer, a firefighter, or even an NBA superstar. Well, what about a web designer? Or a conservation officer? Or a fisheries biologist? Many times you don’t hear those careers be mentioned, but they are out there, and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is one of the places that houses all these amazing jobs! So, if you’re interested in learning about new careers join us in our monthly Conservation Career Chat. Ever wondered what a day in the life of a conservation officer is really like? Or, what field equipment our zoologist uses to track tiger beetles? How about how many miles our public information officers hike to get photos for a NEBRASKAland story? Well, wonder no more! Join us on the third Wednesday of each month at 10am (CST) as we highlight 12 different careers within the Game and Parks realm. These live interviews will be conducted via ZOOM and each month we will focus on a different care… Type of Event: Speakers, Seminars, Presentations. Wednesday, August 18, 2021, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM.

CONSERVATION CAREER CHAT- Recreation Planner-VIRTUAL-NGP

We’ve all heard the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Many times the answer is a doctor, a lawyer, a firefighter, or even an NBA superstar. Well, what about a web designer? Or a conservation officer? Or a fisheries biologist? Many times you don’t hear those careers be mentioned, but they are out there, and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is one of the places that houses all these amazing jobs! So, if you’re interested in learning about new careers join us in our monthly Conservation Career Chat. Ever wondered what a day in the life of a conservation officer is really like? Or, what field equipment our zoologist uses to track tiger beetles? How about how many miles our public information officers hike to get photos for a NEBRASKAland story? Well, wonder no more! Join us on the third Wednesday of each month at 10am (CST) as we highlight 12 different careers within the Game and Parks realm. These live interviews will be conducted via ZOOM and each month we will focus on a different care… Type of Event: Speakers, Seminars, Presentations.

SCIENCE OF…ANIMAL SOUNDS & CALLS-VIRTUAL-NGP

“Who cooks for you?” Who cooks for you all?”  Recognize this call?  Clearly it is a Barred Owl!  Just like humans, animals have adapted many ways of communicating with each other.  Birds use songs, coyote may yip, snakes may hiss, and insects may chirp.  These may be warning calls, to defend their territory, or they may be calling to find a potential mate.  Either way, almost all animals make noise and do so for a reason.  In this episode we will look at the science behind why animals call and how they physically make the calls they do.  Some animals make more calls than others and some have no vocal chords…why?  Well, join us and find out! This event is FREE, but requires pre-registration: https://outdoornebraska.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJctd-yvqTwqHtLTIXn5s9uzjCwBtfuESKRq. Type of Event: Speakers, Seminars, Presentations.
