|Create nature-inspired art at Earth EnVi Art Outdoor event on April 19|
Bring the whole family or take part on your own to take part in an environmental outdoor art project being offered in late April at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Ernie Miller Nature Center.
Now in its second year, the program is called the Earth Envi Outdoor Art, and is for all ages. With the guidance of award-winning Senior Park Naturalist Molly Postlewait, participants will use found natural objects to create temporary works of art in the park. Participants will discuss and appreciate a few of many ephemeral experiences in nature, including rainbows, birds in flight, and animal migrations. Would-be artists will then visit the forest to discover and create a natural project using only eco-friendly supplies. Start a family tradition, sign up individually, or bring some friends.

This program will take place beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 19, at the Ernie Miller Nature Center, 909 N. Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe. The cost for this two-hour session is $3 per person for Johnson County residents or $4 per person for nonresidents. Preregistration is required.
