Kick those winter doldrums by attending Kansas Wetland Education Center’s Winter Kids’ Saturday from 9:30-11 a.m. on Feb. 16. Meet some live winter birds, dissect an owl pellet and create a bone chart. Then we’ll head outside to look for some winter birds and participate in the national Backyard Bird Count.
Bring warm clothes for the out-of-doors portion of the event. KWEC will provide binoculars, but if you have your own, bring them too.
Designed for children 6 through 12 years old, Winter Kids’ Saturday is offered at no charge. Children age 7 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is required by Feb. 13. To register, or for more information, call 620-566-1456 or the toll-free number, 877-243-9268. The maximum class size is 20 children. Although there is no program charge, donations for supplies are always appreciated.
