Visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus are the themes of December Animal Tales Storytelling sessions being presented by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s Outdoor Education Department at the Ernie Miller Nature Center.
December Animal Tales presentations include: "Mrs. Claus" on Dec. 4, and "Visit from Santa” on Dec. 18. Both December sessions take place beginning at 10:30 a.m. on a Wednesday.
Animal Tales is for ages two to six. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This program will feature 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 ago.
