Things that live under rocks and Mother Nature are the themes of  April Animal Tales Storytime sessions  being presented by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District’s Outdoor Education Department at two locations. Young children and their parents are invited to come listen and learn during either or both of the remaining two sessions scheduled on select Wednesdays through April 18.
Animal Tales Storytime is for ages two to six. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This program will feature stories, songs, and surprises. Participants will also get to meet a special animal friend at each session. Animal Tales Storytime was one of the many programs cited when the Ernie Miller Nature Center won an Oracle Award for Organizational Service and Leadership in the South Central Region from the National Storytelling Network a few years ago.
