Mammoths and camels and beardogs, oh my! What incredible creatures roamed Nebraska over the last millions of years? Join us nature nerds as we chat with Highway Paleontologist Shane Tucker to find out! Through stories and conversations we’ll learn how Shane studies fossils as a means to travel through time, uncovering prehistoric landscapes and learning about the diversity of life that has walked, crawled, and flown over Nebraska through time.

Remember- when registering you can submit your questions for our experts and, we’ll do our best to get those questions answered, and more, on the night of the event.

Speakers:
Shane Tucker is a highway paleontologist with the University of Nebraska State Museum and the Nebraska Department of Roads.
Nebraska Nature Nerd Night is a free, virtual series for curious adults, exploring the secrets and science of nature in Nebraska through storytelling and conversation. Join hosts and science educators from Nebraska Game & Parks at 7pm Central on the third Tuesday of every month, as we interview experts in the field about a variety of fascinating topics; from bees, to birds, fossils, to parasites! We’ll dive deeper into the remarkable world of nature found in Nebraska by having lively conversations with real scientists, and by sharing and asking your questions with the experts.
Can’t attend a live event? Don’t worry, we have you covered. We will record each event and place it on our Game and Parks Education YouTube Channel the following day.
