Community programs

Summer 2016 was the first year for two new aspects of Art at Cedar Point, a summer camp for local kids taught by University of Nebraska-Lincoln undergraduate students, and a public speaker series hosted by the Lake McConaughy Visitors Center and Water Interpretive Center. Funded by a grant from the Rural Futures Institute, these programs are back in 2017, and we invite everyone to attend!
