Chris Chizinski,
Cabela’s and UNL’s School of Natural Resources share a commitment to preserving our natural heritage and preparing students to address the growing challenges of creating and maintaining optimal habitats for wildlife, protecting threatened and endangered species, and conserving ecosystems. Together, Cabela’s and UNL are working to provide tangible, experiential opportunities for undergraduate students to keep wild places wild through the Cabela’s Apprenticeship Program.

Initiated in 2016, the goal of the Cabela’s Apprenticeship Program is to provide students with experiential learning opportunities to engage with habitat, animals, and people. The Apprenticeship has provided opportunities for 8 to 10 undergraduate students a year to engage in individualized research projects or gain specific skills in their chosen natural resource profession. To date, the Program has funded 82 Apprenticeships totaling over $250,000. Most of the students have conducted their Apprenticeship in Nebraska. However, several of those Apprenticeships have worked in other states as well as abroad (Canada, Mexico, Botswana, Kenya, and Rwanda).

Please join us on April 12 from 5pm to 7pm on the second floor lobby of Hardin Hall to learn and celebrate the accomplishments of our 2022 Cabela’s Apprentices. Students will be presenting on experiences with primary productivity in lakes; herpetofauna within the Niobrara Valley Preserve; Prairie Massasauga Rattlesnakes; native wildlife and bioenergy production; wildlife rehabilitation; Trumpeter; Oyster mushroom-colonized substrate; beehive influences on productivity; Eastern Red Cedar in Niobrara River Valley; nutrient runoff in Scottsbluff; light and algal growth; conservation and social media; and college students’ perceptions of zoos. Light refreshments will be served.
