Saturday Saunters

Saturday Saunters

A Saturday Saunter is an opportunity to join with other grandparents, parents and students to explore together something of cultural, historical or infrastructure interest in the larger Kansas City area. In the past our outings have included visits to Union Station and the River Market, discovering the Santa Fe Trail, and walking in the woods of the Overland Park Arboretum, and more!
