In 2021, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is celebrating 100 years of inspiring outdoor adventures at our state park system. It began a century ago in 1921 with the establishment of Chadron State Park. Now, Nebraska’s 76 parks are top destinations for Nebraskans and visitors from around the world to enjoy breathtaking landscapes, unique wildlife, and abundant recreation opportunities.
This podcast episode, we interview Margot Desrocher with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Parks division. She enriches us on the history of Nebraska's state parks.
