June presentations are:
June 8 Owls – Eyes of the Night - Great Horned, Barred and Screech owls make Ernie Miller Park their home. Join two live owls and us as we discover more about these creatures of the night.
June 15 Westward to Kansas - Meet pioneer Emily Thomas as she tells stories of her travels west in a covered wagon in search of new opportunities in Kansas in 1855. Help her do some chores around the campfire, enjoy the taste of some Johnny Cake off the fire, and sing a song.
June 22 Snakes Alive - Why is it that these creatures seem so terrifying? Could all the stories you have heard about snakes be true? See Kansas snakes as we explore the facts and fallacies of these legless wonders of the natural world.
June 29 Birds of Prey - By day or by night, out of the sky flies a rodent's nightmare, the birds of prey. Learn why rodents fear these great birds and see close-up examples of these majestic raptors and their special adaptations.
