Join Wilson Public Library on Friday, July 20 at sundown (approximately 9:00pm) for a NASA@ MyLibrary premier event: a star party! Come through the main gates at the Cozad High School football field to sign in and get a glow necklace, then wander to the north end of the field and see some amazing celestial offerings. A star party is a gathering of amateur astronomers for the purpose of observing the sky. Our event will be led by the Platte Valley Astronomical Observers, amateur astronomers from Nebraska and Solar Ambassadors for NASA. Large telescopes will be available for the public to view celestial objects closer than with the naked eye.  Feel free to bring your own telescopes, smart devices with sky watching apps, or binoculars.

Gosper County ATV Awareness & Demonstration Trailer @ Gosper County Fair Grounds
Jul 27 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

ATV Aware
All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are useful modes of transportation on farms and ranches.
However, there are unique safety hazards associated with their use.
Susan Harris-Broomfield, Nebraska Extension Rural Health and Safety Educator, says that the Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services reported 578 hospital emergency room visits due to ATV incidents in 2016. Therefore, responding to these
alarming ATV accident statistics, Nebraska Extension linked with the Nebraska Safety Center, CHI Health Good Samaritan – Kearney, and Central States Center for Agricultural safety to provide a free “ATV Aware” travelling 16’ x 6’ safety demonstration trailer.
Susan plans to provide this custom-made ATV simulator for the Gosper County Fair on Friday, July 27th from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This hands-on simulator will allow riders of all ages to ride and learn proper riding techniques. Using an electric joy-stick, Susan will mimic the actual riding experience along with learning safe riding behaviors & laws.
Come to the Fair and enjoy this free ATV safety experience!!!

More information regarding agricultural safety programs are available through our Nebraska Extension offices.
