Nebraska -(Ammoland.com)- One of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s premier facilities in the Panhandle is about to become even more impressive.
Construction has officially begun on an addition to the Wildcat Hills Nature Center south of Gering.
The $2.375 million expansion will add 8,720 square feet to the building, which serves as headquarters for the Commission’s educational programs in the region and the 700-acre Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area. The new construction will more than double the size of the existing 5,300-square-foot structure.
The expansion will bring exhibit space and a large multipurpose room, both of which are sure to be a popular venue for many events and educational activities. In addition to providing a more adequate area for the array of nature education programs at the center, groups will be allowed to rent the facility for a variety of events such as meetings, conferences and weddings.
