The Niobrara National Scenic River Visitor Center is welcoming children of all ages to stop by on Tuesday afternoons for Nature Creations. From 1 to 4 p.m., kids can stop by, create a craft critter and learn about how that critter spends its time along the Niobrara River.
Each week a new animal will be featured, learn how Mammoths roamed the plains surrounding the Niobrara or why dragonflies flutter around floaters. Once the craft is completed, feel free to wander around the displays or ask a ranger to start the 20-minute film. There are no fees for this activity; the National Park Service provides all supplies. The Niobrara National Scenic River Visitor Center is located at 214 W. Highway 20.
Niobrara National Scenic River is one of America’s National Scenic Rivers and a unit of the National Parks Service in Valentine. For more information, please call 402-376-1901 or visit www.nps.gov/niob.
