This calendar lists just about every upcoming event in Nebraska City that anyone in or out of town might care about. We even considered letting you sync events with Google Calendar or Apple Calendar or other uncreatively named calendar apps, but decided going for page views was a better idea. Sometimes the internet hits you hard.

Feathered Friends at Arbor Lodge
Did you know that Bird Day was once a holiday celebrated along with Arbor Day? Bird Day was designed as a special celebration for school children to learn more about birds as part of their nature study. While serving as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, J. Sterling Morton helped promote the two observances together.
