Bighorn Sheep topic at Monument on Saturday

How much do you know about Bighorn Sheep? Did you even know there is a population of them in the Wildcat Hills and in the Pine Ridge? Amanda Filipi from the Wildcat Hills Nature Center will present the final guest speaker program at the Scotts Bluff National Monument tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon.

Those attending will learn about their amazing adaptations, research being conducted in the area, and much more.

Amanda grew up in central Nebraska where her enthusiastic parents and siblings instilled in her a passion for the outdoors. She received her Bachelors of Natural Resources degree emphasizing Fisheries and Wildlife from the University of Nebraska of Lincoln. Upon hearing about rocky buttes and open prairies, Amanda quickly migrated to western Nebraska. Before coming to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Amanda worked as the Education Coordinator for the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory. She loves being able to use the outdoors to connect students and adults with nature.

The program will be inside the visitor center and will be the last guest speaker program of the summer.
