This year’s Spring field trip will be on Saturday, June 6, at Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area.
We will be meeting at 10am at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center at the Bottoms. We have reserved a classroom there, and are asking participants to bring any materials we can use to collaborate and create a lesson/lab or two that we can then take back and do with our classrooms next year. That may mean bringing laptops, microscopes, slides, petri dishes, dropping pipettes, cameras, nets, buckets, binoculars, etc. The classroom that is reserved has tables and chairs, and that is about it, so we need to bring all of our own lab equipment.
For those who want to arrive Friday and camp out, we will be at the Venango campground at Kanopolis State Park, about 45 minutes northeast of Cheyenne Bottoms. Friday evening we will have fly fishing, bird watching, and other activities for those who are interested. Please bring your own camping gear and food. (Please see the Venango link for camping costs).
Friends and family are welcome! Hope to see you there!
