LINCOLN – Hunters around Olive Creek State Recreation Area should be aware of a report that a dog swimming in the lake recently has died. The cause of death is unconfirmed, but it is suspected that ingestion of toxic blue-green algae might be the cause of death.
The statewide dove hunting season opened in Nebraska on Sept. 1 and will run through Oct. 30. The daily bag and possession limits are 15 and 45, respectively. Bag limits are for mourning, white-winged and Eurasian collared doves in aggregate.
The Arbor Day Foundation will take over management and operation of the site. The Game and Parks Commission would continue to own the 52-room neoclassical mansion, its historical artifacts and 80-acre grounds.
September is Nebraska Archaeology Month and staff of the Nebraska State Historical Society will lead tours of the archaeological sites at Fort Atkinson State Historical Park (SHP), to be held concurrently with the Fort’s Living History weekend on September 6 and 7.
