The Ernie Miller Nature Center is owned and operated by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District and is located at 909 N. Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe.
February presentations include:
Feb. 6 - Animal Scene Investigation - Are you a nature detective? Use your detective skills by reviewing the evidence on unusual animal biofacts and wildlife scenes to solve mysteries in nature.
Feb. 13 - The Good, the Bad, and the Smelly - Take a different look at some of the not-so-glamorous animals such as spiders, snakes, and skunks. These critters may not be lovable to all, but learn why they are important to our lifestyle and environment. Live snakes and spiders will be displayed.
Feb. 20 - Lamp of Freedom - Freedom was the dream of living free that compelled slaves to travel north. Step back in time as “Georgette Tucker” shares her story of the Underground Railroad, a labyrinth of safe houses, ingenious hiding places, acts of bravery and suffering. Please note: This program is designed for children ages 10 and above.
Feb. 27 - Birds of Prey - By day or by night, out of the sky flies a rodent’s nightmare, the birds of prey. Join our Interpretive Staff as they discuss why rodents fear these great birds. Using live birds, participants will see close-up examples of these majestic raptors and their special adaptations.
