Planting for Preschoolers at Wildcat Glades


A day of planting and learning for some pre-schooler's at the Wildcat Glades Conservation & Audubon Center in Joplin.

Children ages three to six participated in a "Wild About Flowers" seminar. Kids were able to get a hands on education about bees and the transfer of pollination to help flowers. At the end children wrote their names on a clay pots and inside they planted some flower seeds.

Volunteers also took the pre-schooler's on a hike to hear and smell the beauty around them.

"Its takes their attention away when your trying to look at a flower and they hear a sound and you say that's the red wing blackbird or that a woodpecker feeding on the feeder you know they need to see what they can see and everybody will take something different away with them" says Vicki Cassady.
