    So that everyone could join us for this one, we moved Wildlife Wednesday to SUNDAY, October 27th! Add this free and fun family event to your Halloween plans! Join us at Schramm Education Center to learn more about bats from around the world and right here in Nebraska. NWRI staff will share tons of information in a presentation about bats and bring a few along for you to meet! This event is free and located in the center’s classroom, accessible through the West Entrance. (Visitors who wish to also tour Schramm Education Center will need to pay admission and enter through the East entrance. No park permit is required in the center’s parking lot.)

  • November - TBD
  • December - TBD

(The location for these sessions will vary from month-to-month.  Have an idea for a Wildlife Wednesday topic? E-mail us at!)
