Rock Earth Day with Party for the Planet at the Sedgwick County Zoo on April 23 — a free environmental fair with hands-on activities and interactive exhibits for young citizens of the Earth. "Our guests will learn about wind and solar power,” says Melissa Graham, zoo representative, “wetlands, water cycles, and animal habitats. And of course, recycling!”


Eagles and schoolchildren

are both beneficiaries in two SPLURGE! stories this month. The Eagle Valley Raptor Center in Cheney has assisted approximately 175 birds per year to become independent and return to nature. And Exploration Place's outreach program has brought its own unique brand of engaging science to 32,000 schoolchildren in the community.

We also interview Bill Crites, the new executive chef at YaYa's, and look forward to two perennial April favorites in the 'Ta: Gridiron and the Art and Book Fair.
