The new path to the Chet Ager Building at the Pioneers Park Nature Center is now open. The path has been closed since June 13 to fix runoff issues. The project included the replacement of the concrete path with permeable pavers and a new drain. The work was funded through the Watershed Management Division of the Public Works and Utilities Department.
The Pioneers Park Nature Center includes 668 acres of tallgrass prairie, woodlands, wetlands, hiking trails, non-releasable raptor exhibits, bison, elk and deer as well as indoor small animal displays and hands-on educational exhibits. Admission is free. For more information visit parks.lincoln.ne.gov/naturecenter.
