Outreach Programs

bring the nature center to you

No Field Trips or Outreach until Summer 2020

Based on the latest COVID-19 guidelines, we will NOT be hosting field trips at the Great Plains Nature Center or visiting other facilities for the remainder of the Spring semester.

But you can Skype a Naturalist!

We will work with you individually to determine the best way to augment your virtual classroom and how we can connect (not necessarily with Skype).


Can’t make it to our facility? Our amazing staff and wildlife can come to you! Our outreach programs are free of charge and are available for a wide range of audiences.

This includes but isn’t limited to:

  • All classroom settings
  • Retirement and assisted living communities
  • Neighborhood associations
  • Community clubs and other group meetings
  • Scout groups

Minimum two-week notice on all programs. Dates are scheduled as they're received.

Due to an increase in program demands, we are unable to do programs outside the greater Wichita area. If your school/group is located more than 1 hour away from our facility, please consider setting up a field trip to our facility as an alternative.
