My Work is Wild - Kristopher Stahr, Aquatic Invasive Species Program Manager, Nebraska Game & Parks Commission
My Work is Wild is a 2021 Zoom series will explore non-traditional careers working with wildlife and animals.

Geared toward high school students, but open to the entire family, My Work is Wild will be online once a month starting in January.
