The Kansas Wetlands Education Center at Cheyenne Bottoms is offering several kids and adult programs in the coming weeks. If you have any questions about any of them, please contact the KWEC.

Winter Kids Programs

Designed for children ages 5 through 12, one-hour programs will be offered at no charge from 10-11 a.m., Feb. 13, Feb. 20, and 27. Children age 7 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Registration deadlines are Feb. 12, Feb. 15, and Feb. 22. To register for classes, or for more information, call 620-786-7456 or 1-877-243-9268.

Feb. 13–Let it Snow:  Discover the wonders of snow, including whether each snowflake is different, demonstrations showing how crystals are made, and make your very own unique snowflake.

Feb. 20–Snow Birds:  Learn to identify the hardy birds that stay through the Kansas winter and their songs. In honor of National Bird Feeding Month, you’ll make a bird feeder to attract birds to your backyard.

Feb. 27–Making Tracks:  Often the only sign an animal has visited is their tracks. Find out how to identify animals by their tracks and make a track banner.

Winter Adult/Family Programs

Feb. 28–2:00p.m.

Landscaping for the Birds:  Retired K-State extension horticulturist, and former interim director of the KWEC, Terry Mannell provides information on plantings targeted to attract local bird species to your yard. There is no charge but pre-registration is required by Feb. 24 by calling KWEC at 620-786-7456 or 1-877-243-9268.
