MDC staff lead children on a nature walk at the Discovery Center.
MDC's Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center at 4750 Troost Ave. in Kansas City will now be open every Saturday but closed on Mondays. The center offers outdoor skills and nature programs, and visitors also often tour the outdoor native plant garden.
