Nature Conservancy Anderson County Prairies Tour • Anderson County

Saturday, Jun 16th, 2012 @ 10am-12noon
Anderson County Prairies Preserve • 5 miles south of Garnett, KS • Garnett, KS • Map

The Nature Conservancy’s Anderson County Prairie Preserve, five miles south of Garnett, lies within Kansas’ largest prairie landscape east of the Flint Hills. This high-quality tallgrass prairie preserve supports populations of Mead’s milkweed, greater prairie-chicken, and other rare species.

Through a partnership with the Kansas Biological Survey, Anderson County Prairie Preserve also serves as an outdoor laboratory for research on prairie ecosystems. Access is normally limited to researchers, so don’t miss this special opportunity to visit the preserve and learn more about the plants and animals of the region. The tour will begin with a brief presentation about patch-burn grazing at the preserve and conclude with small-group walking tours led by scientists and staff from the Kansas Biological Survey and Conservancy.

To cover The Nature Conservancy’s expenses for this event, the cost of the tour is $10 for Conservancy members and $15 for non-members. Reservations are required and space is limited. To register, please email Laura at or call (785) 233-4400. Specific location and further details will be sent to registrants prior to the tour.
