Workshops are developed in collaboration with Sunset Zoo for an enhanced two-part experience reaching even more awards and the ability to earn a unique participation patch.

The workshops at the Flint Hills Discovery Center and Sunset Zoo are designed to be completed in any order and can be scheduled on separate days or back-to-back for an entire day of fun and excitement. Dates are limited, and a minimum of two weeks advanced notice is requested.

Between Earth and Sky
Girls will explore the nature around them and the Flint Hills ecoregion by learning about soils, seeds, plants and more to further their journey towards the Blue Bucket, Firefly and Clover awards! They will dive into the world of soil by learning what is good and bad about soil, and learn how to preserve the Flint Hills, a national treasure.
