Busy Bees Program for ages 4 & 5 on March 8 kicks off Spring Time Series at Ernie Miller Nature Center
POSTED: 02/19/2014
Honeybees are the theme of the first in a series of three programs for young children being offered during March, April, and May at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Ernie Miller Nature Center, 909 North Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe.

The programs are called the Spring Time Series and are for ages four and five. These programs are meant as an opportunity for participants to enjoy nature on Saturday mornings as spring is budding all around. Your child will have fun while learning about natural and cultural concepts from a park naturalist. To find these programs 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 keyword “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.

The first program in the Spring Time Series is called Busy Bees and will take place on March 8 beginning at 9:30 a.m. Young naturalists will do a bee dance and taste a bee-made snack. Because space is limited preregistration is required.

Other programs in the Spring Time series include a Spring Fling on April 5, and To Mother Nature....With Love on May 10.

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
