  • A Spring 2021 overnight stay, birding with MRBO, and picnic lunch at the historic Prairie Park estate in Arrow Rock.
  • An any-time virtual wine-tasting for up to three households, hosted by MRBO’s Dana and Ethan.
  • A painting class with Arrow Rock’s Little Studio and Gallery owner Karen Miller.
  • Cocktails, a BBQ and a backyard banding demonstration for eight at a rural Saline County log cabin.
  • Kids’ Corner – fun, educational items and experiences for children!
