The Nebraska Water Center, in partnership with the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s School of Natural Resources, continues its Spring Water Seminar Series focused on hydro-tourism and economic development in Nebraska.

The first seminar was held Feb. 2 and is now available online at the link above. It explored the Antelope Valley project with guests Wynn Hjermstad, community development manager for the City of Lincoln and Glenn Johnson, former general manager or the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District.

The second seminar is coming up on Feb. 16 and features Kevin Kruse, river designer at JEO Consulting Firm and Steve Rames, city engineer for the City of Norfolk, both discussing the North Fork Development Project.

On Mar. 2, we will explore hydrotourism and the Nebraska outdoor enthusiast with guests Chris Chizinski, associate professor, School of Natural Resources and Dean Rosenthal, administrator, Fisheries Division, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

Overall, the 2022 series will highlight the significance that water holds in and around Nebraska and its ability to bring people from all walks of life together. The series is open to the public and will be held at Hardin Hall on the university’s East Campus at 3:30 p.m. every other Wednesday through April 20.
