Bugs and Mother Nature are the themes of April Animal Tales Storytime sessions being presented by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s Outdoor Education Department.
April Animal Tales presentations are: “Busy Bugs” on April 3, and “Hello, Mother Nature” on April 17. The cost per 30-minute session is $2 per person, including adults, payable at the event. Advance registrations are not necessary for this program. Both of these sessions take place beginning at 10:30 a.m. on a Wednesday at the Ernie Miller Nature Center, 909 N. Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe.
Animal Tales Storytime is for ages two to six. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This program features stories, songs, and surprises. Participants will also get to meet a special animal friend at each session. 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 a few years back.
