LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln Parks and Recreation is hosting an event Saturday to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Pioneers Park Nature Center.

The free event, which runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., will be held at the west end of Pioneers Park, city officials say.

Those attending can enjoy nature activities, live animals, art and games.

All prairie trails will be open, and tours will be held at the Cunningham School and Hudson Cabin.

“Since 1963 the Nature Center has served as an environmental education center and wildlife sanctuary,” said Andrea Faas, the park’s nature center coordinator, in a press release. “During the last 60 years, its leadership along with staff and regular visitors from the community have allowed the continued success of the Nature Center.”
