News & Events

What better way to celebrate wildlife, partnerships, and our community than by getting together all year long?  This year, we have dozens of programs and events planned, including:

Wildlife Wednesdays – Join us at 6 PM on the second Wednesday of every month to learn more about NWRI and Wildlife.  With a different topic every month, there’s something for everyone! Topics planned are:

January 9, 2019 – “Saving a Prairie Dog Town” with Laura Stastny

Come out to the Nebraska Humane Society to learn more about Prairie Dogs, our 2018 Prairie Dog Relocation Project, and what you can do to advocate for native wildlife in Nebraska. The program will take place at the Nebraska Humane Society at 90th and Fort in Omaha at 6 PM.

February – “Legislating for Wildlife” with Jocelyn Nickerson

Also at the Nebraska Humane Society, this session will talk about state and federal legislation that affects wildlife, and give you practical ideas on what you can do to help protect our natural legacy. The program will take place at the Nebraska Humane Society at 90th and Fort in Omaha at 6 PM.
