Mahaffie participates in the Interpretive Site Coalition's Passport to Adventure. The 2013 Kick Off hosted over 200 visitors at Bass Pro Shops of Olathe. The passports have information about many different nature centers and museums located throughout the Kansas City Metro area. Once 15 of the 22 sites have been stamped you can receive a prize pack beginning in September. Passports are now available and can be picked up at Mahaffie Wednesday-Saturday 10am to 4pm and Sundays noon to 4pm. Also, a big thank you to the over 40 visitors who visited Thursday March 21 for Spring Break Living History. The weather has been quite challenging lately (the calendar says late March but the grounds look like February) so we thank the visitors who endured the snow for a stagecoach ride. The visitors did enjoy the buffalo robes keeping them warm during the ride.
