(Neb)-Hudson-Meng Open House To End Season, Celebrate 20th Anniversary
HUDSON-MENG - Today begins the final week of the season for the Hudson-Meng bison bonebed Education and Research Center northwest of Crawford, which is marking the final weekend - Labor Day Weekend - with a 20th anniversary open house.
Hudson Meng site manager Ryan Means all admission fees will be waived Saturday-Monday with special activities planned for all ages that include a free lunch on Saturday, flint-knapping demonstrations by Dave Nixon on Sunday and Monday, and a "make your own atlatl" craft event.
Leading into the weekend celebration will be two nights of a fun-filled Nebraska archaeology and history- themed interactive Ranger Talk.
Ranger Jacob Hesslau and Passport in Time volunteer Aaron Shenewolf will make their presentation Friday night at 7:00 at the picnic shelter next to Solider Creek Campground at Fort Robinson State Park, then repeat it Sat at 7:00 at Chadron State Park by the Lagoon shelter.
A short presentation on archaeology and Nebraska history and how you can find ties to them in unlikely places leads into a Nebraska History trivia game with prizes. Both talks are free, but a State Park permit is required.
