Valentine and Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuges initiate construction projects to enhance public access

VALENTINE – This fall and winter, construction projects will begin at two Nebraska national wildlife refuges to enhance public access, visitor experience and visitor safety. At Valentine National Wildlife Refuge, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) will add gravel and recondition the existing roadway surface of the Little Hay Wildlife Drive. At Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge, the Service will renovate the Fort Falls Trail trailhead and parking area. The projects will result in temporary closures of the affected roads and trails at the refuges.

Honoring our veterans!

Honoring our veterans!

In a nation that has revered our veterans for years, COVID-19 has kept them from receiving their due recognition. And that’s sad. Our schools, from the elementary, middle, on through high school, each has a program where they honor veterans. But as the needle crept over the orange mark on the COVID-19 scale, it was clear that the programs would need to be held within the walls of the schools while the veterans watched via Striv TV.
