Nebraska Nature Nerd Night: Stories From the Field: Research Flops and Failures

November 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Many of us might be able to spout out a few fun animal facts from time to time. But have you ever wondered how we came to know about the animal world? Through biologists, ecologists, zoologists, and other research scientists getting out in the field and studying these creatures! Just like in any other line of work however, field researchers can have bad, strange, or just plain funny days in the field too. Join us nature nerds as we hear stories from the field from different research scientists, and learn more about the comical and sometimes strange side of studying the natural world.
Registration is required to attend: Register Here
Remember- when registering you can submit your questions for our experts and, we’ll do our best to get those questions answered, and more, on the night of the event.
Nebraska Nature Nerd Night is a free, virtual series for curious adults, exploring the secrets and science of nature in Nebraska through storytelling and conversation. Join hosts and science educators from Nebraska Game & Parks at 7pm Central on the third Tuesday of every month, as we interview experts in the field about a variety of fascinating topics; from bees, to birds, fossils, to parasites! We’ll dive deeper into the remarkable world of nature found in Nebraska by having lively conversations with real scientists, and by sharing and asking your questions with the experts.
Can’t attend a live event? Don’t worry, we have you covered. We will record each event and place it on our Game and Parks Education YouTube Channel the following day.
