Flint Hills Exploration


Explore the life of a child in the historical Flint Hills or investigate the various rocks, plants, and wildlife of this unique landscape with this guided experience from the Flint Hills Discovery Center. Choose the areas of the Flint Hills that you want to explore-history, geology, ecology, or a combination. Each program has the potential to be unique based on the collection of activities selected by the group.

Teachers and parents can pick four activities and one alternative while scheduling the class. Students will move through the activities in a “round-robin” fashion. The fun and fresh experience at each station ensures young minds never get bored while teachers can gear the experience to many different overarching areas of content from the classroom.
