Conserving the Gems of Kansas • Harvey County

Tuesday, Feb 26th, 2019 @ 6:30pm
Dyck Arboretum of the Plains • 177 West Hickory Street • Hesston, KS • Map

Since 1951, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has worked to protect the lands and waters on which all life depends. In Kansas, TNC has permanently protected 139,470-acres, including five preserves that are open to the public, and empowered private landowners to enhance wildlife habitat and protect native plant diversity. Explore these places with Kansas Chapter director Rob Manes, from the famous Flint Hills in the east to the new Little Jerusalem Badlands State Park in the west. You’ll gain a greater appreciation for the diversity of our state and be inspired to visit Kansas’ natural areas.

Lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. Cost: $5 per person.
