KWEC offers Winter Kids’ Saturday
Get up close with some of our winter birds during the Kansas Wetland Education Center’s Winter Kids’ Saturday event on Feb. 16. Participants will also dissect owl pellets and search for more birds out-of-doors.

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.

Although there is no program charge, donations for supplies are always appreciated.
