Lauritzen Gardens is a 100-acre outdoor garden of unique four-season plant displays. It provides educational opportunities to learn about the importance of plants, and “celebrates the bond between people and plants by instilling a deeper understanding of the need to conserve earth’s biological heritage." Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska is a platinum sponsor of the Tempo of Twilight summer outdoor concert series. In addition, Blue Cross sponsors field trips for students at Conestoga Elementary to gain education outside of the classroom.
Omaha Zoo Foundation
The Omaha Zoo Foundation was founded in 1984 and supports the mission, research and programs benefiting Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo. The foundation is dedicated to preserving the zoo’s legacy by seeking support to build and renovate exhibits, launch new education programs, render the grounds more beautiful and accessible and to embark on conservation initiatives that touch the most remote habitats of the globe. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska sponsors events such as the Ed-Zoo-Cation experience that allows students from greater Nebraska to camp out in the zoo’s unique learning environment.
