June presentations are:
July 11 - Howdy Sheriff: Take a step back in history and meet a deputy sheriff from the old west. Learn about law enforcement in the 1870s as well as what it means to be a deputy. Once you get yer learnin' done, the deputy will put you through the paces and make you an "official" deputy! Afterwards, meet a real Johnson County Park Police Officer who will explain what it means to be a modern police officer.
June 18 - Masters of Darkness: Learn how the human body adapts to the coming of night as the five senses change to enhance the world around you. Discover the mad skills nocturnal animals have that make them masters of darkness. See one particular master up close and make connections with body morphology and behavior as dusk comes to the forest floor.
July 25 - 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.
