Welcome (back) to Cheyenne Bottoms and the Kansas Wetlands Education Center by Curtis Wolf.
Many people in the hunting and birding communities are very familiar with Cheyenne Bottoms as a must-see destination for their trades. However, many others know very little about the awesome wetland resource that lies right here in Central Kansas. Did you know Cheyenne Bottoms is the largest wetland in the interior of the U.S.? Curtis will describe the importance of Cheyenne Bottoms, showing many photos, videos, and recordings of some of the unique avian visitors that call the Bottoms home. We will also discuss some of the recent improvements that have been made at Cheyenne Bottoms to improve wildlife habitat. Finally, we will reintroduce the work of KWEC.
Curtis Wolf is the director at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center (KWEC) at Cheyenne Bottoms near Great Bend, KS. The KWEC opened in April 2009 and is operated as a branch of Fort Hays State University’s Werth College of Science Technology and Mathematics.
Programs will not be live-streamed this year, but you can see recordings after the live program on Youtube.
