The Walkabout will be led by expert birder Mark Brogie of Creighton. Several types of sites will be visited including prairie, woodlands and a pristine wetland. Tribal leaders will speak on the importance of birds to the Native population and also share information about their bison herd. Rebekah Jessen, Northern Prairie Lands Trust and Nebraska Game & Parks Commission will present information on the native habitats of wildlife in the area.
As the name indicates, some walking will be involved and the event will conclude by 10 a.m. This activity is another opportunity to become more informed about what exists in nature right “in our own backyard”. It is being sponsored by the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska and the Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council.
