Schedule for Family Fun Fridays:
Pollinators, June 11: Who are our pollinator friends? What makes a good habitat for them? Lucinda Mays, public horticulturalist and Grounds Supervisor at Chadron State College, will show you how to make a welcoming spot. Hear a story, make a pot, and take home a plant of your own!

Activities include a game, and an opportunity to interact with biologist and insect specialist Dr. Mat Brust from Chadron State College so bring your questions and your insect friends too. Participants will receive a GLOBE mosquito mapper kit that includes a guide, stickers, and an active eye Universal Mobile Phone Microscope (while supplies last).
The Genius of Birds, June 24: It turns out that bird brains are pretty smart. Learn about our feathered friends, play a game and make a bird feeder to take home! Check out our display of birding guides and nature books too.
