Forest News

  • Shadows of the Night: A Forest Gone Batty is a special halloween treat for Fontenelle Forest members on October 31! We've partnered with our friends at Nebraska Wildlife Rehab and Opera Omaha to create a unique opportunity to learn more about bats and meet some of them up close. Click here for more information.

  • You might notice students wandering the wetlands with some equipment during this fall.  Want to know why?  Check out this article by Jeanine Lackey, Director of Research and Stewardship.

  • Please note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the previously announced enLIGHTen exhibit has been postponed until October 2015.
