Sabetha Lake Wildflower Tour • Nemaha County

Saturday, Apr 28th, 2012 @ 1pm
Sabetha Lake • 192nd Road • Sabetha, KS • Map

Sabetha City Lake is located 6 miles west of Sabetha on 192nd Road. This is an opportunity to explore a northern area of Kansas. Follow a KNPS guide and tour the lake grounds and discover wildflowers, forbs, grasses, sedges, trees, shrubs, and more! Some rare plants we hope to see are Limber honeysuckle and Virginia clematis.

Wear sturdy shoes and long sleeves. Bring insect repellent, water and a snack if you choose.

Meet at the Casey's General Store on Old Highway 75 (Acorn Road), one block south of Main Street in Sabetha at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, and carpool to the Sabetha Lake west of town.

Report

20 people attended the event.

Mary Jo notified the six regional newspapers using a poster designed by Nadine. Sponsors included Nadineís company, Prairie Place Designs LLC, as well as Grimmís Gardens (Hiawatha) and KNPS. The enthusiastic Mr. Hansen led both walks, and as he reported, about 20 people showed up. The weather was perfect, we visited three areas of the lake, and afterward a gentleman from Sabetha offered to take anyone interested to a nearby pristine prairie remnant. It was very like the extraordinary Leavenworth AWW prairies! An attendee from Horton in Atchison County telephoned today saying he is trying to get permission for a walk on land in Brown County. Other future plans include a wildflower walk at Atchison State Fishing Lake.
