Time outdoors is time well spent

Nebraska Game and Parks offers a plethora of opportunities beyond events. You can get away and unwind by planning a trip to a Nebraska state park. You can catch the next big one, go wildlife viewing, plan a hunt or more. Or you can help us celebrate our park system’s 100th birthday. Go ahead: Build your own adventure.
