Explore Bowhunting

Contact: Jeff Rawlinson
for more information

Identify a white-tailed deer’s heavy track, mimic a wild turkey’s call. That’s Explore Bowhunting. Take cover in a makeshift blind at the edge of the woods. Still. Quiet. Every movement counts. That’s Explore Bowhunting. It’s a bow and arrow. It’s precision and confidence. It’s you and the outdoors. Read the Brochure>>

Aquatic Education Program

Aquatic Education Program is about water. It's about how fish live and what they need to survive. It's about learning to protect the precious water resources found in Nebraska's lakes and rivers. Aquatic education is about fun. It's about learning or teaching fishing skills. It's about enjoying fishing time with family and friends in Nebraska's great outdoors.

The goal of WILD is to assist students of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment to result in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning the environment.
