|New Kansas Day Celebration is Jan. 26 at Ernie Miller Nature Center|
Come celebrate all things Kansas during a statehood day celebration being planned at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Ernie Miller Nature Center in late January.
The program is called Kansas Day Celebration and will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26. This program is for all ages and this week replaces the Sunday family series presentation. From sunflowers to tiger salamanders, participants will get chance to see some of the natural symbols of the state. Have a piece of cake for the state's birthday and be delighted by stories from a pioneer. There will be fun activities for all ages and an opportunity to join in a rousing chorus of "Home of the Range."
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under fun for all and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “history.”
The cost for this two-hour event is $5 per person, including adults. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the nature center at (913) 764-7759.
