Want to learn more about the creatures who hop, swim, crawl and croak in Nebraska? Schramm Education Center is partnering with the University of Nebraska – Lincoln to host an “Amphibians of Nebraska” event on Saturday April 11 from 9:30am – 4pm.
This free public program will feature University of Nebraska-Lincoln herpetologist Dennis Ferraro presenting live exhibits in Schramm’s classroom featuring native species of frogs, toads, and salamanders that call Nebraska home.
Visitors will leave the event with a greater appreciation and understanding of what makes amphibians unique, and why they play an important role in Nebraska’s ecosystems.
This open house style event is free and located in the center’s classroom, accessible through the West Entrance.
**Visitors who wish to also tour Schramm Education Center will need to pay admission and enter through the main entrance.
No park permit is required in the center’s parking lot.
Join us at 19600 Harrison Street for our annual WE Community Easter Celebration & Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 11th from 1:00-2:00 PM!
WE will gather inside for a special Family Easter Program followed by our GINORMOUS EASTER EGG HUNT! WE have more than 10,000 eggs waiting for our friends to hunt. There will be separate egg hunt areas for toddlers, preschoolers, K-2nd graders and 3rd-5th graders. It’s going to be a great time so be sure to invite your family, friends and neighbors!
WE are also in need of volunteers to help with various aspects of hunt. You may sign up to volunteer at https://www.weomaha.com/events/weegghunt/.
Can’t volunteer, but still want to help out? We are also in need of donations of individually wrapped candy or small toys to place in eggs. Donations may be dropped off at the WE Kids Check-In Station on Sunday mornings or at the church Monday-Thursday from 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM. No chocolate candy, please.

Our tabletop adventure group (or TAG) is currently planning to meet on a bi-weekly basis.
We will be available at to help people make characters, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm for playing time. We are playing through a pre-published campaign in the 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons rule-set. All characters currently are level 4.
Great for anyone around 12 and up, and for anyone whether they’ve played before or not at all! Great time to bond with your kids, spouse, partner, friends, or family! Come to have some fun, or meet people that enjoy something you enjoy!
We will be beginning a new Campaign in August, so if you’re looking for a time to start, this is a great one!
If you are interested in playing, feel free to show up! We either have pre-made characters you can choose from, or you can create your own if you’ve played before. All we ask is that if you HAVE played before and plan to roll for stats, is that you do so in front of a DM.
Have any questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for answers to anything you’re wondering.
