Since 1995 the Center for Grassland Studies has offered a seminar series during the first semester of the school year. The CGS Fall Seminar Series features guest lecturers from on and off campus who speak on topics related to the Center's mission such as:
- Future challenges in grassland stewardship

Nebraska Grazing Conference
The NGC is designed for people with an interest in the utilization and conservation of our grazing lands, and a desire to learn the most current information on grazing livestock systems and their impact on our lands. Beginning and experienced graziers, land managers, and policy makers can all benefit from attending the NGC. While the focus is on Nebraska, information is applicable beyond its borders, evidenced by the fact that participants come from several states each year. The average attendance at the NGC is 200 participants.
