Wooden picnic tables and park benches nestle against sky-blue walls and ceilings adorned with clouds, trees, and woodland creatures, including Lost in Fun's mascot, Scotty the Squirrel. Inside Lost in Fun's frolic-friendly environment, toddlers, kids, and teens navigate a variety of age-appropriate play areas. With the Mini Fun Pass, toddlers can waddle through play sets, bounce on inflatable jumpers, and fall safely through space in the foam pit before building ornate monuments with blocks and studying the laws of motion on the fun slides. Children of all ages dodge brilliant beams while maneuvering through the Lost Laser Temple, and older kids can use the Mega or Mini Fun Passes to access the indoor playground's attractions or play basketball. When energy wanes, staff members serve up snacks from a menu overflowing with pizza, burgers, chicken nuggets, and ice cream. Adults may enter and play for free or rest on Adirondack-style wooden chairs as they observe their children brachiating in their natural habitat.
Six climate-controlled indoor courts and twelve hard-surface outdoor battlegrounds host racket-swingers aged 5 and older at the $3 million Nebraska Tennis Academy facilities, nestled within the sprawling 215-acre confines of the Abbot Sports Complex. The academy's certified instructors foster adults' skills with drills designed to initiate new players, introduce new strokes, and elevate heart rates with tennis-oriented workouts. They also mold minors with a comprehensive Junior Development curriculum that prepares students for high-school play, more intense sessions for those committed to competing at a high level, and Quick Start classes—which tailor court dimensions, equipment, and scoring systems to the skills and sizes of players aged 5 to 11. During downtime, visitors can burn calories in the full-service health and fitness center or make macaroni portraits of Andre Agassi in the players' lounge.
In 1972, on the anniversary of the very first Arbor Day, an environmentally minded group of people created the Arbor Day Foundation to pursue the chlorophyll-laden mission of restoring habitats and natural ecosystems in the United States. The organization’s one million members help support conservation programs all over the country and spread awareness about the necessity of protecting our arboreal natural resources. The Tree City USA program replenishes urban forests in more than 3,400 towns and cities, helping produce cleaner air, lower energy costs, and storm-water control. Rain Forest Rescue preserves tropical rainforests and supports native rainforest families to maintain the habitats of more than half the planet’s plant, animal, and wandering conservationist species.

Host to concerts celebrated by the Lincoln Journal Star](http://gr.pn/zuQOEY), Sheldon Friends of Chamber Music has drawn out-of-state musicians to southeastern Nebraska for more than 40 consecutive seasons. The collective’s four or five concerts per year showcase both renowned and emerging ensembles, playing works from living composers and interpretations of 18th- and 19th-century standards that evoke modernity without the need to convert them to ringtones. Intimate performances blossom in the auditorium of the Sheldon Museum of Art, whose wealth of modern art pieces engages concertgoers during intermissions. Contextualizing details in preshow lectures imbue performances with greater meaning, and discounted student tickets help acquaint local youths with the art and elegance of chamber music.
