Fair Bound

Tomorrow morning I’ll be bound for our brand new Nebraska Game and Parks Commission exhibit at the NE State Fair in Grand Island’s Fonner Park. I can’t wait to work it all day! Our free exhibit area is bigger and better than ever! Called the Nebraska Outdoor Encounter it encompasses over 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space in the Nebraska Building and features unique displays and interactive activities designed to get people outdoors. Take a look at a few photos of it snapped by fellow Game and Parks staff members.

You can look (or listen) for me roaming the exhibit area and answering any outdoor questions you might have. With my various hats and masks along with my wildlife calls, I have been told that I may be the closest thing we have to a Game and Parks mascot, HA! What do you think? Hope to see you and your family at the fair!
