June presentations are:
June 5: Stories Under the Stars - Enjoy old-fashioned family fun with stories and music. Join park staff as they share stories of animal encounters, mysterious legends, and tales to tickle your funny bone. All ages are welcome to experience the wonder and magic of storytelling.
June 12: 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.
June 19: Snakes Alive - Why is it that these animals seem so terrifying? Could all the stories you have heard be true? See Kansas snakes and explore the facts and fallacies of these legless wonders.
June 26: Kansas Symbols - Celebrate Kansas history with this program, where you'll learn about our natural state representatives like the salamander, box turtle, bison, and more. We will examine some of our official state symbols and visit with two live animals which represent our great state.
