COVID-19 Update 8/22/20:

As a result of the increase in cases of COVID-19 in Sedgwick County the Great Plains Nature Center (GPNC) has decided not to schedule any new outreach programs during the fall. Additional programming beyond will be evaluated monthly. The GPNC will remain open to walk-in visitation, and certain weekly programs will continue with social distancing guidelines and masks required for visitors, staff, and GPNC volunteers.
