Great Plains Nature Center in Wichita KS

This year’s OK Kids Day (2021) will be super fun. This is also FREE fishing weekend, so you can enjoy some fishing in the ponds as well. 

From 10 am. – 1 pm. Chisholm Creek Park will be full of opportunities for outdoor fun, including: fishing at Island Pond, learning and practicing archery, a close encounter with something scaly, feeding the turtles, ducks, and other critters along the creek, and answering riddles for prizes!

The forecast shows sunny weather, so be sure to bring some water along with you to drink, and you might want to wear a hat and sunscreen to help protect yourself!

Outdoor Kansas Kids (O.K. Kids) is a statewide program coordinated by Kansas Wildscape. The mission of O.K. Kids is “To provide multiple outdoor recreation opportunities for Kansas youth with adult partnering and mentoring to encourage outdoor recreational opportunities, and promote and provide an active lifestyle as an alternative to sedentary activities.”

At the Great Plains Nature Center O.K. Kids Day event, they usually have lots of fun and free activities,  including things like crafts, hikes, archery, fishing, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
