Welcome Event - Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium

As the 2017 NEAFCS Annual Session begins in October, you will be welcomed to Nebraska with a visit to Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium plus enjoy Nebraska steaks for dinner! This world class zoo is a star attraction for visitors from around the world. You will have the opportunity to peruse several of the outstanding exhibits to see animals and sea life up close and personal! To remember the occasion, the gift shop will also be open.

To carry out the Welcome Event theme – a visit to Henry Doorly Zoo – a special service project is being planned. Everyone is invited to donate a stuffed animal to share joy with the children at the Omaha Children’s Hospital & Medical Center.  We will have a collection point near the Conference Registration Desk.  Donations will be accepted throughout the entire conference.

Since these children are fighting many types of illnesses, there are several guidelines that need to be followed to keep them safe.

  • All toys must be new, with original purchase tags still attached.
  • They must be from a smoke and pet-free environment.
  • To keep the toys clean from purchase to donation, please seal in a zip-tight bag.
  • Personalize your gift with a note in the bag telling who donated the animal, why you picked it (ex: maybe your school mascot or your favorite pet) and encouragement for the child.
