Today we took a field trip with a group of kids from Vacation Bible School from our church. The field trip was to Prairie Heritage Center near Peterson, IA. They have a lot of great things for the kids to look at and learn from. In the basement of the Prairie Heritage Center, they had a very large snake set up! The whole room was filled with nothing but pictures and information about snakes. The kids absolutely loved every part of it! On the main level, they had an exhibit to show prairie animals and plants.
The kids also did a scavenger hunt in this area of the center. There were all kinds of information about the heritage of the land the center sits on and of the local area. The Prairie Heritage Center sits in the hills and has a beautiful view from the windows. They have binoculars and a telescope available for visitors to help enjoy the view.
Overall, the group had a great time. JM and I plan on going back soon since we had limited time today. Also, the resident Buffalo are expecting calves soon, and we can't wait to see the new babies.
