Thank You, Evergy Green Team Volunteers!

Thank You, Evergy Green Team Volunteers!

The Kansas Children's Discovery Center hosted a great group of volunteers recently from the Evergy Green Team! This hard-working group of volunteers worked alongside the museum exhibits team to build the new Curious George: Let's Get Curious traveling exhibit.

Evergy is a long-term supporter of the museum who has made countless large and small projects possible. Evergy provided considerable funding and Green Team volunteers for a project to make the Discovery Center’s pond and stream more interactive and safe, helped oversee multiple prescribed burns of the Discovery Center’s prairie restoration habitat, tended to trees, built the Tree House and sand areas, and funded museum access programs.

The Green Team itself is a group of employees and retiree volunteers that has taken on environmental projects across Kansas and Missouri since 1989. The team completes 50 to 70 projects per year, mostly on weekends and evenings, according to its website. The Green Team collaborates with conservation groups, agencies and schools in enhancing and fostering an understanding of the Kansas and Missouri environment, as well as improving natural habitats and helping provide access to important environmental areas.

Kansas Children’s Discovery Center offers high-quality, interactive experiences to inspire a lifelong love of learning for every child. Volunteers support our mission by creating these memorable experiences for every family who walks through our doors. Volunteers engage children in fun educational activities, pitch in at special events, maintain our outdoor space, and keep exhibit areas ready for play.
