THIS POST IS AN UPDATE AS OF 09 JULY FOR THE ANNUAL KABT CAMPING TRIP. THE INFORMATION IS MORE OR LESS IDENTICAL UNLESS NOTED IN **BOLD**. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, CALL OR EMAIL DREW ISING. CONTACT INFORMATION IS POSTED ON THE KABT FACEBOOK GROUP.
** Based on the nature of the field sites we will be visiting, and the recent weather, I highly recommend you bring rubber boots if they are available to you. **
There was an earlier post with a basic agenda for the weekend posted a few weeks back, which I recommend you go back to check out if you haven’t already. Due to the confidential nature of the sites we will be visiting (who knew that conservation could have such intrigue?!), I can’t post exact directions to each of the sites we will be visiting on Saturday, but I can give you more information about the camp site.
We will be rendezvousing at the **OUTLET CHANNEL** (US Army Corps of Engineers). While the Elk City State Park sites were really nice, the Corps of Engineers areas are significantly more free. 🙂
As you can probably see from the map, to get to the camping grounds **coming from the north**, you’ll probably want to take US75 Hwy to **Road 5400. You will then turn south (likely left) onto Road 2950. At the Fish & Wildlife Office, bear left (away from Rd 5050). Cellular service is available in the area, but you may be roaming depending on your carrier. We’ll try to get signs directing you to the camping ground, or feel free to call Drew (913-634-8059) or Noah (316-259-5942).
There is a good chance that it will rain at some point during the weekend, so PLEASE plan accordingly. No one likes a complainer. 🙂
There aren’t *supposed* to be severe storms at this point, but stay tuned here and in the KABT Facebook group.
Let me know if there are any questions via email or FB group message, and get ready to see some things that most Kansans never will.
