|Meet Our Donors|
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska is no stranger to putting the needs of people first. They have a long and proud tradition of doing what's best not only for their customers, but for the Nebraska communities they serve.
Thanks to their generous support, an exciting overnight zoo education experience is available to students across the state of Nebraska at no cost to their schools. The Ed-Zoo-Cation experience was designed specifically to reach out to communities outside of the Omaha metropolitan area so that they too could benefit from the Zoo’s unique learning environment. A campout is regularly $22 a person, making it unaffordable for many out of area schools.
Students participate in conservation themed activities, go on a night hike around the zoo, participate in a living classroom experience and a behind the scenes tour. This program has made a tremendous difference to the schools of greater Nebraska, with over a thousand students participating in the program’s first year! We are grateful for the support of Blue Cross and Blue Shield and their commitment to education. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska
