Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department’s Prairie Park Nature Center is hosting a weekly program for preschoolers and their parents.

Wild Adventures 4 Preschoolers will introduce participants to a different topic each week through stories, activities and information about animals and the places in which they live. Programs will be partially held outdoors.

This program is open to children two years-old to five years-old. Sessions will be held 10-11 a.m. Thursdays, Nov. 4-Dec. 16, at Prairie Park Nature Center, 2730 Harper St. Cost is $24 per child.

Registration is also taken up to a week in advance of each weekly session on a space available basis. Cost for an individual program session is $4 per session. Please call in advance to reserve a spot. Due to space limitations, no more than one adult per child may be present at each session.

This program requires face coverings to be worn at all times and follows COVID-19 safety guidelines, which can be found at
