About the Event

This meetup is for everyone!

KWEC will be hosting an in-person regional gathering for those interested in networking, interacting with other educators in the area, and touring the Kansas Wetlands Education Center.  

Cheyenne Bottoms is the largest wetland complex in the interior of the United States and early November is one of the best times to spot one of the rarest birds in North America, the Whooping Crane!  Visit the Kansas Wetlands Education Center to experience the interactive exhibits, visit the classroom animals, and watch the 16-minute video about Cheyenne Bottoms.  

Participants will learn about KWEC's educational programs and engage in one first-hand.  Each registrant will also receive a copy of one of our most recent projects - Ava: A Year of Adventure in the Life of an American Avocet, a fully illustrated children's book about shorebirds and Cheyenne Bottoms.  

The experience will end as you don binoculars and enjoy a guided tour of the marsh and its wildlife inhabitants.  We can expect to see large flocks of geese (mostly White-fronts, and Snows), ducks (mixed species), Pelicans, Coots, Gulls, Grebes, and murmurations of Blackbirds.  Other common species to see include Cormorants, Harriers, and Herons.  There should be late shorebird migrants like Wilson's Snipe, Least Sandpipers, Killdeer, American Avocets, and Ibis.  Flocks of Sandhill Cranes might be heard overhead.

See you there!
