Summer Outreach Programs

let us bring nature to you!


The Great Plains Nature Center is offering outreach programs this summer for groups of all ages! We are now scheduling outreach programs beginning June 1st through July 31st. Our naturalist-led outreach programs are 30 minutes long and include an up-close encounter with one of our delightful animal ambassadors. GPNC is pleased to offer these programs free of charge.

Presently, we are offering outreach programs built around three topics:

  • Birds of Prey (includes a visit from a raptor such as an owl or hawk)
  • Mammals (includes a visit from an opossum)
  • Snakes (we have many amazing reptile ambassadors!)

To schedule your outreach experience, complete the Outreach Request Form below!

Outreach programs may be scheduled Monday through Friday during regular business hours (8am to 5pm). Programs will be scheduled as they are received, and we prefer you contact us at least two weeks in advance of your desired program date.

To avoid large gatherings, we request that our group sizes for outreach programs be limited to 30 persons. For large groups, we can offer up to three successive 30-minute programs to accommodate your numbers.

We look forward to visiting you!
