In the Wild with Greg Wagner

EARLY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION: VACATION NEBRASKA IN 2010 by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

Snow cover now blankets much of Nebraska and the Wagner family is thinking warmer thoughts. In fact, I’d like to invite you to join us in making an early New Year’s resolution to spend your 2010 outdoor vacation in Nebraska this year. Maybe visit a new area or region or even revisit a location that you’ve been to and enjoyed on a prior trip.

We – the Wagner’s – are already in the process of planning a July trip back to northwestern Nebraska to canoe, trout fish, hike, explore and camp in the Upper Snake River area with rancher friends in Cherry County southeast of Gordon. Find out more about that on my Great Outdoor Radio Show streamed “live” Saturday from 9-10 a.m. CST on and see where we’re going in the pics below.

Nebraska has such an incredible diversity of terrain, natural resources, parks and outdoor recreational opportunities over its approximate 77,000 square miles. Did you know that Nebraska has some 24,000 miles of rivers, streams and canals? In fact, canoe trails have been established on ten different rivers or stretches of rivers. Be sure to look into float trip possibilities with outfitters this spring and summer on these rivers. Here’s a link to investigate those:

Our state parklands in Nebraska are second to none for family getaways and stays. Take a tour of those here:

I expect to see you out there! Vacation Nebraska in 2010!

I was wondering if you know of anywhere I can find a detailed map of the Snake River, or who I can contact about kayaking down it as I have heard it is mostly on private property, Thanks.
