Planet Walk at Prairie Heritage Center

April 15 @ 5:30 pm

How big is our solar system?  How far away are the planets?  The size of space is difficult to image.  Join the O’Brien County Naturalist for a hike through the prairie to discover the distance to our near and far solar neighbors.  We will be creating a walking model of the solar system starting at the center and heading off down the path.  You may be surprised by how far apart our planets are spread!

The Planet Walk will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, April 15 at the Prairie Heritage Center.  While at the center, be sure to take a little time to check out the Explore Science: Earth and Space exhibit in the lower level.  There are many engaging activities and interesting information on display.

Call the Prairie Heritage Center – 712-295-7200 for more information.
