Community partners come together on day where regular admission is waived.

Manhattan, Kan. – On Sunday, September 9 from 12PM (noon) – 5PM, the Flint Hills Discovery Center (FHDC) will open up its doors to the community, offering free admission to all during their annual Community Day. On this day, local partners will be present to interact with guests, provide family-friendly activities, and on-hand to discuss their organization’s resources.

Guests can expect to meet representatives from the Riley County Police Department, USD 383, the Boys and Girls Club, the Riley County Historical Society and Museum, the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas and NW Missouri, the Manhattan Public Library, the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, HyVee, and more!

This year, the Center welcomes a new partner to this event, Westar Energy, who is sponsoring a 2018 initiative at the FHDC to provide STEM programming to young people in various forums. In addition to the already fun and interactive activities provided by community partners, visitors can expect a variety of engaging STEM programs at this event made possible by the generous and mindful support of Westar Energy.
