Seniors Understanding Nature (SUN) – Hitler’s Effect on Wildlife Populations in Nebraska: How WWII Changed the Landscape
March 10 @ 9:45 am - 11:00 am
Join us for our monthly Seniors Understanding Nature (SUN) lecture series at the Nature Center! Snacks and coffee are available before the presentation, and an optional guided walk on the boardwalk is offered following the program. This program is free for members or with daily admission.
This month we will hear from Dr. Larkin Powell, Director of the Great Plains Cooperative Ecosystems Study Unit and Professor of Conservation Biology/Animal Ecology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Dr. Powell will discuss how the 1940’s were a threshold moment for how we farmed in Nebraska, and how subsequent changes affected habitat for wildlife across the state.
