Tallgrass prairie once covered 170 million acres of North America. Now, only four percent of this grassland remains. Native plants and prairies are an important part of our ecosystem and the Discovery Center maintains a prairie restoration on our grounds. Join us for a family-friendly guided prairie walk on on Saturday, October 21 at 10 a.m. at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center to learn all about this amazing ecosystem.
Because our prairie is outside the museum gates, no admission is required to attend this program. However, to enter the museum, regular admission applies, which is $9 for children and adults, $8 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
