New Beetles, Butterflies and Burgers Scavenger Hunt for all ages is April 21
POSTED: 04/02/2015
Have fun hunting for artificial beetles and butterflies during a new special event for all ages being presented by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District in late April.

Participants will meet at Shelter #3 in Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam. Working in teams which must include at least one adult, scavengers will hunt for artificial buggy beetles and majestic butterflies around the park! The team which locates all of the beetles and butterflies first wins the grand prize and all teams receive goodie bags. Following the hunt, enjoy burgers and chips for lunch.
