An installation by expedition geologist and artist Charles Lindsay, who directs the artist-in-residence program for SETI (Search For Extra Terrestrial Intelligence). The installation will delve into earth's geological and cultural pasts, using scientific equipment salvaged from space exploration archaeology. Specimens and artifacts in Field Station 4 provoke musings on human perceptions of time and space.

What has ears but cannot hear? A field of corn! Announcing the 14th year of Hoo Haw, an excellent live music performance with mediocre comedy. This familiar, fun-loving cast has been bringing in a full-house for 15 years now. The Columbian has maintained a strict cleaning regimen, has social distancing built into the online seating and we're dying to break a leg! There won’t be a full house but tickets are sure to sell out and the audience is sure to roar. Veteran actor and director Troy Hemphill heads the annual favorite with new skits, songs, and knee-slappers.?
August 22, 2020, 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM @ Fancy Creek State Park Trailhead
We are combining two trails to make one awesome loop hike! The combined trail is about 5 -5.5 miles long traversing an easy, mostly flat terrain. The two trails are the Eagle Pass Trail, that features views of a lake and a small forest, and the Western Heritage Trail, that is a nice short, mostly paved walk along the river bank and wooded areas. You are welcomed to join us on one or both trails.
Please, note, that to access the Eagle Pass trailhead, you will need to have a state park permit. If you have a permit, great! If you don't have a permit, you have two options:
(1) You can carpool with one of us (the organizers). Please, text or email, so we can arrange a pick-up place and time.
(2) You can purchase a permit at the entrance booth. The fees are: $5 for a daily vehicle permit or $25 annual vehicle permit. (You can also purchase the Kansas State Parks Passport, available only at the time of your vehicle's registration for $15.50 at your county treasurer's office.)

Play Ball! Behind-the-scenes secrets of baseball, which gained American popularity on an amateur level nearly 200 years ago. You'll want to hop off the bench, grip a bat and belt one out of the park! There are multiple layers of involvement within the sport: player, manager/coach, umpire, scorekeeper or voracious fan. This exhibition contends with how each facet of the game is broken down into math and science.
