Families Learn At La Vista BioBlitz

Science lovers got a chance to learn and have some fun Saturday in La Vista. The first ever BioBlitz was held at Central Park.

There were all types of booths, demonstrations, and hands on activities for the kids. Plus, families could learn about the current watershed project going on there.

The City is in the process of repairing erosion damage and restoring the watershed as a whole.

Chris Madden with the Nebraska Watershed Network said, “The most important thing about that long term success is not just getting people to know about it and like it, but to understand why the creek is important to their community and understand how they can take care of it.”

Kids also got a chance to watch some biologists at work as they took samples from the creek.
