We've had run ins before with people at CG's throwing "illegal" fireworks around campsites.
Your Thoughts ?
Make that 6 parks...not 8
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says those recreation areas include Branched Oak near Malcolm, Fort Kearny near Kearney, Pawnee near Emerald, Wagon Train near Hickman and those near Memphis and Fremont. Those parks will permit fireworks from 8 a.m. until midnight on July 4 only.
Signs at recreation areas will point the way to designated fireworks sites, and their boundaries will be clearly marked. Use of fireworks elsewhere in state areas or at other times is prohibited.
updated: second part didn't make it on original post.
Good idea, lots of inexperienced people who may not even care about our nature throwing sparks and fire into the dry woods. Good combination. It will go well with all the fires this year.
