|Visit Ernie Miller Nature Center to participate in Passport to Adventure 2018 beginning March 24|
Gather your family and pick up your Passport to Adventure for the Interpretive Site Coalition of Kansas City’s annual event at the Ernie Miller Nature Center or at any of nearly 20 other sites in the metro area beginning March 24.
Passport to Adventure is a great way for area residents to experience nature, science, and history in their own backyard. The event is meant to encourage the public to visit area nature centers, museums, and historic sites between March 24 and Oct. 31.
This year’s event will kickoff from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, at the Independence Bass Pro Shop, 18001 Bass Pro Drive, Independence. Participants can pick up their 2018 passport, visit booths from participating facilities, see live animals - including critters from the Ernie Miller Nature Center, and participate in hands-on activities. To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under fun for all and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “nature & outdoors.”
The Passport to Adventure program is free, although some sites charge regular admission to their facilities. Participants can also obtain a passport at any of the participating sites. Passport holders have until Oct. 31 to get their passport stamped at participating sites in order to be eligible for prizes. For a complete list of sites for 2018, visit kcpassport.com.
