What do animals do first thing in the morning when they wake up? What do they have for breakfast?  Find out as Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department’s Prairie Park Nature Center presents PJ Morning at the Nature Center.

PJ Morning at the Nature Center allows participants ages six years-old to 13 years-old the opportunity to learn about animals’ activity at dawn and what they do when they first wake up.  Kids will go on a hike, weather permitting and will end the session with a cinnamon roll and movie. The program is designed for parents to do last minute holiday shopping. It will be held 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21, at Prairie Park Nature Center, 2730 Harper St. Cost is $25.
