People who love nature and work to preserve it

The Wichita Audubon Society

Due to coronavirus precautions, we must cancel all scheduled programs & field trips. In July we begin planning for the next year, so we will update the calendar as plans are made. The trails and the Visitor's Center at Chaplin Nature Center are open.

Upcoming Events

Program Meetings

From September to May we have monthly programs on the third Tuesday, 7 pm at the Great Plains Nature Center. They feature a variety of nature topics that inform us and expand our horizons. All are free and open to everyone.

Field Trips

We take field trips every month of the year, from walks in local parks to multi-day expeditions to other states. Everyone is welcome, from beginners to experts.
