Session topics may include: trees, soils, insects, plants, water, and native grasses, said UNL Educator Brenda Aufdenkamp.

The full-day program will run from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. with students rotating between 8 sessions.

This event is free to all participating schools. Students are asked to bring their own sack lunch.
