Hat & Badge





A lot of duty comes with wearing this badge and hat.  I have completely enjoyed getting to know these folks.

Monty the Zebra







We were able to get out into the animals and enjoy them right BEFORE the rain.  It poured on us as we drove out.  Oh well, we did not melt and it was TOTALLY worth it.  This is a very friendly Zebra, Monte, who will gladly eat carrots from your hand....and keep eating your hand if you forget to let go.

The newest members of the "Not So Jr Rangers" club





A happy group, for sure.

Homestead Day 2 - Water Quality testing with 8th grade science students




 

In the early 2000's Homestead began partnering with the 8th grade science students in Beatrice.  Two times a month, 20 students come out to take the samples.  They will be tested back in the science lab in their school.  Hopefully, I'll go there on Friday to have a look.

Homestead Day 1 Citizenship Ceremony





Two times a year they have a citizenship ceremony at Homestead.  There were just over 30 people who took the oath and became a citizen of the United States of America.
