Visit a Favorite Place on Earth: Chase State Fishing Lake • Chase County

Tuesday, Jun 16th, 2009 @ 5pm
Strong City, KS • Map

Led by Brad Guhr, Education Coordinator. Do you have a favorite place on earth that you never get tired of visiting? One of mine is in the heart of the Flint Hills at Chase State Fishing Lake (CCFL). Start by visiting a cool oasis along the spillway stream with woodland vegetation, water falls, shallow pools, and shelves of limestone to explore. Proceed up bluffs overlooking the reservoir with prairie wildflowers in June splendor. There you will be surrounded by buffalo wallows, waves of prairie as far as the eye can see, and endless wind and sky that will take you back to another place in time. Leave in vans from the Dyck Arboretum at 5:00 p.m., enjoy supper provided at CCFL, and return to Hesston after sunset. $15 for adults, $10 for children under 13. RSVP by Friday, June 12.
