LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Ponca State Park is hosting an event to teach people about wildlife.

The event will take place Saturday. It will focus on various animal and bird species that live in the park along the Missouri River in northeast Nebraska.

Event coordinator Lynn Mellick says the park has an abundance of songbirds, beavers, turkeys, raccoons and other animals.

A “Critter Corner” event is scheduled for 11 a.m. Participants will meet at the Missouri River Resource and Education Center to touch live animals, feathers, fur and more.

An event titled “Animal Detective Season” is set for 2 p.m. It will teach participants how to identify clues that animals leave behind, such as tracks and scat.

Both sessions are free with the purchase of a park permit.
