KNPS Spring Board Meeting & Outing • Brown County

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015 @ 12pm-2pm
1774 230th Street • Hiawatha, KS • Map

The Spring board meeting will be held at the The Klinefelter Barn located on Highland Community College's Klinefelter Farm. The barn was built in the late 1800’s. It is an example of the “Swiss dairy barn” style with an overhang on the east side. The barn was blown off its foundation by a tornado in the early 1900’s and was rebuilt. KNPS members are welcome to attend the board meeting. Mr. Ganstrom will give a short powerpoint presentation of the history and future purpose for this facility to start off the meeting. Following the meeting we will botanize around the farm site and trails. Members who plan to join us for the walk should be at the barn at 2pm.

Directions: Go two miles east of Hiawatha, KS on US 36, exit at the Mulberry Rd. interchange. Turn east on 230th St. which parallels US 36 (HCC sign at corner), and go 2/3 mile east to 1774 230th St., the main farm entrance. There are two driveways entering the farmstead. Both lead to the Conference Center parking areas.
