Nebraska Prairie Chicken Festival 2014

Prairie Chicken

The annual Nebraska Prairie Chicken Festival, hosted by Calamus Outfitters and the Gracie Creek Landowners, starts today and runs through Sunday (April 4-5). The Festival kicks off with a trade show featuring local arts and crafts, educational displays, locally raised beef, live birds and more. Again this year, there will also be a great line up of speakers, including Chris Helzer, David Neilson and Jerome Kills Small. All are invited to join Dan Glomski for stargazing Friday and Saturday night, and Joan Wells will be back with her country western band and fancy trick roping. Additionally, Nebraska Leopold Conservation Award winner, the Shovel Dot Ranch, will be at the event on Saturday, as well as UNL’s Barta Brothers Ranch, which serves as a home base for a lot of prairie chicken research. Finally, the prairie chickens and sharp-tailed grouse will be in full swing/dance early each morning.
