Bring the family to the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s Ernie Miller Nature Center in January for Sunday Family Nature Programs. Presentations  begin at 2 p.m., last about 45 minutes, and are designed for all ages. A charge of $3 per person, payable at the site, helps cover the cost of the programs; children under two  are free. 

January presentations will include:

  • Jan. 6: Weird Wonders of Wildlife - Discover unusual wildlife found in Kansas and their strange adaptations. See a legless lizard, a stick insect, and other weird animals.
  • Jan. 13: Killer Beaks and Feet - See live raptors, and discover their adaptations that make them such excellent hunters. 
  • Jan. 20: Snakes Alive - See Kansas snakes as we explore the facts and fallacies of these legless wonders of the natural world.
  • Jan. 27: Kansas Symbols  - Celebrate Kansas' Statehood Day, which this year falls on Jan. 29! See some of the natural symbols live and in person, including live animals.

The Sunday Family Series will continue in February with “Know Your Scat” on Feb. 3; “Ferrets in Kansas” on Feb. 10; “Furs and the Frontier” on Feb. 17; and “Wildlife Who’s Who” on Feb. 24.
