2-27-10 Nature at GPNC

With today's weather being in the low-50's, we took advantage of it and headed to the Great Plains Nature Center, located on the east side of town, adjacent to Chisolm Trail Park. Before the city had expanded too far east, GPNC was constructed in cooperation with the Kansas Wildlife & Parks to preserve and reestablish nature as it once was 100 years ago. Now as the city has grown around it, GPNC is a great place to explore & lose yourself into the world of nature. (Also good for picture taking!) I plan on returning later in the spring to see it as it starts to come alive with green vegitation, trees, animals & insects.
