Activities will vary between hikes, animal programs, and various nature activities.

Adventure time will be outside as much as possible, weather permitting.

The adventure begins at 10 a.m. July 1, and will happen every Wednesday until August.

This is available for ages 7+. Adults do not have to accompany the child during activities, but they MUST stay at the Great Plains Nature Center.

This event is FREE, and there is no registration required. 

Meet up outside in front of the main entrance of the Great Plains Nature Center.

Each week has a different adventure in store:

  • 7/15 Snake Hike

  • 7/29 Nature Journaling with the Virginia Opossum
