Your Little Critter will enjoy two hours of fun and education on the first Thursday of each month as you enjoy some personal time during a new program being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District’s Outdoor Education Department.Little Critters is the name of this program for ages three through five, which will take place at the Ernie Miller Nature Center, 909 N. Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe. Activities will vary but we will have a snack, make a craft, play games, and see an animal visitor each day. Each month's program has a theme. For the Sept. 6 session, the theme is "Fall Fairytale Forest". Other themes this season are: "Slimy, Scaly, Not So Creepy” on Oct. 4, "Feathers, Beaks & Feet" on Nov. 1, and "Holiday Animal Party" on Dec. 6.
