Experience the fun of the farm at this must-attend event for kids! The day starts with a chance to try their hands at typical farm chores like gathering eggs and caring for a horse. For each chore your children complete, they’ll get a sticker. The afternoon includes wagon rides and exploring the Spring Hill Ranch.
The Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is dedicated to preserving this special ecosystem, which once spanned 170 million acres in North America. Today, less than 4 percent of that prairieland remains. Luckily for us, most of that is in the Flint Hills, so it’s close enough for us to enjoy. The preserve is located along the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway, so you can enjoy views of rolling hills and farmland as you travel there and back.
