Adopted at the January Commission Meeting, the new Strategic Education Plan is a 5-year plan that provides six goals for advancing and coordinating education initiatives across the entire agency. The plan, developed through a team of administrators and agency educators, highlights the amazing education programs currently taking place and details work that will grow and synchronize education.
The Plan focuses on each kinds of education our agency provides – natural resources or ecological education, cultural and historical education, outdoor recreation and skills education. Much of the plan is dedicated to evaluating the current education programs, assessing the changing demographics of the state and determining what our constituents want from the Commission when it comes to education. We believe that before we embark on new programs, we must first determine what our constituents demand and need.
Our goal is to develop and sustain a leadership role in ecological, cultural and outdoor recreation education in Nebraska ensuring our diverse communities have an appreciation and knowledge of our state’s natural and cultural resources resulting in greater understanding, support for and participation in conservation and outdoor recreation.

Have you heard about our new Take ’em Hunting Challenge?
This fun promotion encourages experienced hunters to take a pledge to go hunting with someone who either has never hunted before or who hasn’t hunted in several years. Hunters who take a photo of themselves taking someone hunting can enter an online drawing for dozens of prizes (NGPC employees are not eligible).
Here’s where you can help. Tell your friends and family about it. Spread it on social media outlets. Most importantly, participate!
Whether you are a seasoned hunter or a novice, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is working on details that could allow you to be paired with a co-worker to participate in this challenge.
Hunting is fun, and hunters enjoy sharing their knowledge and passion with others – especially people they work with at Game and Parks.
Record your hunting adventures here.
