The Great Plains Nature Center specializes in topics related to the great plains region.

Programs can be between 15 minutes and 1 hour. Naturalists can give multiple presentations during a single trip to your facility.

Outreach programs are limited to once a semester. There is no fee for our programming, but donations to Friends of the Great Plains Nature Center (FGPNC) are gratefully accepted.
