Thursday, April 22nd is Earth Day and Friday the 23rd is Arbor Day! Help us celebrate both events on Friday, April 23rd from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm at the Prairie Oak Nature Center in Ironwoods Park (look for the building with the large squirrel on top)!
Family friendly activities will be available, with an emphasis on the “Five R’s — Reducing, Reusing, Repurposing, Recycling, and Rotting”, as well as celebrating and encouraging the sustainability of our Wildlife Pollinators, and Green Energy Practices.
We will again have “starter” trees available beginning the 23rd, free to any family wishing to plant them at home. These are available until the supply is exhausted.
The Nature Center is committed to educating all visitors about our environment and will continue to be a resource for the citizens of Leawood and the surrounding communities.
