Walk with Wildlife at the Great Plains Nature Center

KS Hawking Club at Walk with Wildlife

Paul Spexarth of the Kansas Hawking Club – ┬áThis is one of my favorite pictures from the event. :)

This is an activity that could easily become an annual family tradition. It makes for a fun and interesting day spent outside.

Get up close and personal with as many as fifty species of wildlife at the 29th annual Walk with Wildlife at the Great Plains Nature Center here in Wichita on Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Admission is only $2 per person for the whole day.

Volunteers will be stationed along the 1/2 mile handicap-accessible walk at Chisholm Creek Park to show visitors various insects, reptiles, mammals, birds, and amphibians and to answer questions. When you’ve had enough of the Kansas heat, head indoors to the Koch Habitat Hall to explore $1 million dollar’s worth of hands-on nature displays in air-conditioned comfort. Catch a fun and educational movie in Coleman Auditorium and shop in the Owl’s Nest Gift Shop. Don’t miss some of the outstanding publications and guides by local authors and photographers. In the lobby there are usually a few free games or activities for the kids.

Lunch concessions will be available for purchase.

Bring your camera! I have several really nice pictures of the wildlife and the people.
