|Winter Fun Series for ages 4 & 5 at Ernie Miller Nature Center kicks off with Winter Wonderland Program on Jan. 11|
Winter Wonderland is the theme of the first in a series of three programs for young children being offered during January and February at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Ernie Miller Nature Center, 909 North Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe.
The programs are called the Winter Fun Series and are for ages four and five. These programs are meant as an opportunity for participants to enjoy nature during the chilly season. Children will have fun while learning about natural and cultural concepts from a park naturalist.
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under preschool and then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “preschool.”
The programs can be taken separately or as a package. If taken separately, the cost for one 90-minute session is $12 per person for Johnson County residents or $14 for nonresidents. The package cost for three sessions is $27 for Johnson County residents or $30 for nonresidents. Participants should dress for the weather. Because space is limited preregistration is required.
The first program in the series is Winter Wonderland and will take place on Jan. 11 . Young naturalists will bundle up and take a walk in the woods. They will also learn about snowflakes, make a snowflake of their own, see live animals, and discover what they do when there is snow on the ground.
Other programs in the Winter Funs series include Dinosaur Adventure on Feb. 1 and Whooo Goes There on Feb. 22. All three programs begin at 9:30 a.m. on a Saturday.
The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, see the District's website at www.jcprd.com.
