KWEC: Marsh Under the Moon

Friday, October 15, 2021

You've seen Cheyenne Bottoms in the daytime, but what happens when the sun goes down, and the moon rises over our marsh? Register with an adult and come out to the Kansas Wetlands Education Center for an evening of spider sniffing, bat detection, and checking out the eye shine of various wetland animals. Fluorescence (emission of light) occurs frequently in nature in some minerals and in many biological forms. We'll check out some examples and play some of our own glow-in-the-dark games! Participants will roast hot dogs and enjoy S'mores in the KWEC fire pit. We'll spend much of the program outdoors, so dress for the weather and wear closed toed shoes. This program will be held at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center from 6-9pm. The program is open to children ages 6-12 accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is required and is due by Tuesday, October 12th.' Ages 6-12 yrs (with an adult/guardian)
