Gibbon, NE (February 21, 2020) – The Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary will host the Wild Experience Room on Saturday, February 29, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Kearney Public Library. The event will feature family-friendly, nature-related activities plus a special guest presenter.

This annual event is open to people of all ages with activities ranging from dissecting a rotten log to looking at furs and skulls of native Nebraskan mammals to coloring a camouflage bird. All activities are courtesy of Master Naturalists, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, and Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary.

The event will also feature special animal guests from the Zoozeum in downtown Kearney. Participants can get an up-close look at the animals while learning about them.

“This event is a great opportunity for families in Kearney,” said Beka Yates, Education Manager at Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary. “It’s a way for people to connect with nature while staying in town.”
