POSTED: 09/20/2006
Three nature programs featuring live animals are being offered for groups by the Ernie Miller Nature Center, 909 North Kansas-7 Highway, Olathe, or at your location in Kansas. The programs are called Wildlife Who's Who/ Wildlife Webs, Snakes Alive, and Birds of Prey and are presented by Johnson County Park and Recreation District interpretive staff members. Search for the keywords "wildlife presentations" to find these programs in the JCPRD's Activities catalog and online listings.

Each program lasts approximately 45 minutes and can be presented at the Ernie Miller Nature Center or at another location.

Wildlife Who's Who/ Wildlife Webs is for grades kindergarten through third. Participants will meet several native animals and learn about their interrelationship with the food chain.

Snakes Alive is a live snake presentation in which participants will explore the facts and fallacies of these legless wonders of the natural world. This program is for grades two and up.

Birds of Prey is for grades four and up. Participants will get a close-up look at the special adaptations that make birds of prey some of nature's best hunters. This program will feature live examples of these majestic raptors.

Cost for presentation of any of these programs for your group at the Ernie Miller Nature Center for one to 15 people is $29 for Johnson County residents or $32 for nonresidents. For 16 to 35 people, the cost is $36 for Johnson County residents or $40 for nonresidents. Cost for any presentation at your location for one to 35 people is $49 for Johnson County residents or $54 for nonresidents. The center's live animal programs are available in Kansas only.
