Join us for our free speaker series at Schramm Education Center where we will be promoting conversations that facilitate scientific literacy and encourage lifelong learning for all ages.

Birding by Ear, January 19: Ever wonder what bird was making all that noise? Or if the song you heard on a spring morning was a Robin, a Cardinal, or a Meadowlark?  Join Jason “the Birdnerd” St. Sauver and find out!  This Birding By Ear workshop covers 10 fun tips on improving your bird song and sound identification and includes several sounds from local Nebraska birds to learn and practice.

Wild Bees of Nebraska, February 16: Learn about the diversity of wild bees in Nebraska, and how to take on an active role in pollinator conservation!

People Powered Science, March 15: Do you love science and the natural world? Are you often sharing your animal, plant, and other nature observations with family and friends?  Each day, people like you contribute to scientific research in Nebraska and across the globe. Join Watchable Wildlife Biologist Alie Mayes to learn how you can get involved.

Geology Underfoot: Rocks of Schramm Park and Global Connections, April 19: Rocks that outcrop at Schramm Park record a snapshot in geological time when the Nebraska was connected to the global ocean across a shallow sea to the west, but still some distance from the high and rising Appalachian Mountains to the east. This presentation will make connections between modern ice ages, and how the patterns of rocks at Schramm Park can help understand how ice sheets in the south polar region ~300 million years ago controlled sea level changes and past global climate.  This past history guides our understanding of modern and future ice sheet behavior and the dynamic nature of our planet.
