KIMBALL, Neb. - The birds of Kimball County will be highlighted during a four week series of Watchable Wildlife Tours sponsored by the Kimball Area Tourism. The series, titled “For the Birds,” will start April 22nd and run through May 13th. They will be on Saturdays starting at 8AM. All tours will depart from the High Point Welcome Center of Western Nebraska located at I-80, Exit 20. The tours are free, but reservations are required.
Tourism Director, Jo Caskey, explained why reservations are required. “Our guide for these tours is providing some time to help people have a more enjoyable wildlife viewing experience. If we don’t know how many people to plan for, we may not have seating to go around.” She also added, “The guide has other responsibilities, as well. We don’t want to tie up his time waiting to see if anyone shows up. If we have no reservations for a morning tour, I can contact the guide the evening before. It’s a courtesy to all involved.”
Reservations may be made by calling the center at 308-241-0573.
