Field Trip Across Lincoln passport returns for the third year

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Field Trip Across Lincoln passport is back for the third year, and there are 10 different places to visit.

This year’s locations include the Great Plains Art Museum, the Lincoln Children’s Zoo, the Lincoln Saline and Wetlands Center, and Morrill Hall.

Morrill Hall is preparing to open a new exhibit on Saturday that showcases X-rays of fish.

The program is conducted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Great Plains Studies.

Alison Cloet, education and outreach associate for the center, said the goal is to engage families with all the different educational opportunities in Lincoln in the summer.

“We’re really trying to give students and youth just an opportunity to be able to kind of see collectively, like in a booklet, what educational sites are available for them to explore this summer,” she said.

She also said it’s a great way to see how nature is interconnected with engineering, natural history and other fields.

If you are going to participate, you have until July 31 to visit at least five sites.

Once you are done, email a photo of the passport to or take the passport to any of the sites to be entered for a chance to win prizes.

The prizes include family museum memberships, art classes and T-shirts.
