* Learn about butterflies and other pollinators with the Douglas County
Conservation District. We may even catch a few. 
* Go on a guided walk and learn about Snyder’s plants and history.

Parking is limited so carpooling in encouraged. A free bus will also leave the Topeka Zoo parking lot at 11:00 am and return at 3:00. RSVP is required to ride the bus so contact GHF by Sept. 12 to reserve your spot.
