LINCOLN, Neb. — Why do deer sport antlers? Why do badgers live in burrows? How are mushrooms different than plants?

Learn the answers to these questions and more through an eight-week virtual webinar series hosted by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission educators starting Sept. 3. The series, “The Science of …,” will take place via Zoom at 3 p.m. on Thursdays and is designed for anyone curious about the natural world — but especially for trivia hounds.

The series will feature:

  • Oct. 1: The Science of … Wildlife Diseases
  • Oct. 8: The Science of … Fungi

The webinars are free, but require pre-registration. Sign up for one or all of the webinars at calendar.outdoornebraska.gov or through the Game and Parks’ Facebook page at facebook.com/negameandparks. Those registered will receive a confirmation email with a password to login to the webinar at the specific date and time.
