New season of Animal Tales Storytime sessions begins May 1 at Ernie Miller Nature Center
POSTED: 04/10/2013
 
A new season of Animal Tales Storytime sessions is beginning at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District’s Ernie Miller Nature Center in Olathe. Young children and their parents are invited to come listen and learn during any or all of the six sessions set for Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. between May 1 and July 24.

Animal Tales Storytime is for ages two to six. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This program will feature stories, songs, and surprises and an opportunity to meet an animal friend. Animal Tales Storytime was one of the many programs cited when the Ernie Miller Nature Center won an Oracle Award for Organizational Service and Leadership in the South Central Region from the National Storytelling Network in 2011. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under preschool and then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “storytelling.”

The first program of this season will be offered on May 1 when the theme will be “May Day.” Other upcoming storytime sessions are scheduled for: May 15 ("Butterflies & Bees"); June 5 ("Turtle Surprise"); June 19 ("Animal Peek-A-Boo"); July 10 ("Birds of a Feather"); and July 24 ("Crawdad Creek").

The cost per 30-minute session is $2 per person, including adults, payable at the event. Advance registrations are not necessary for this program.

Ernie Miller Nature Center is located at 909 N. Kansas-7 Highway, Olathe. For more information, contact the Nature Center at (913) 764-7759.
