    Students will read about the community of the Niobrara Valley prior to their field trip to develop an understanding of the significance of development and its co-existence with preservation of a natural resource. Students will demonstrate their understanding of the interrelationships contained in the river system by writing a descriptive essay based on an essay prompt of their choice.

    Create-Your-Own Field Experience

    Tell us what you'd like to cover and we'll create a Niobrara-specific program for you. Since we work in partnership with other agencies to secure access for these programs, field-immersion experiences require at least two weeks notice. Past locations have included Smith Falls State Park, Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge, and The Nature Conservancy's Niobrara Valley Preserve.
