Kansas WILD at Mushroom Rock State Park

Posted Feb 07, 2020 6:05 PM

WILD is a group for school-age youth interested in getting outside and enjoying nature. Kansas Wetlands Education Center hosts a monthly activity, and are always welcoming new families.

KWEC WILD club will be doing a service project for this month, and then a little fun afterwards as well.

Kanopolis State Park has been working hard to get their trails back open after flooding last spring.

On Saturday, February 22, WILD will depart the KWEC parking lot, 592 NE K 156 Hwy, Great Bend, at 8:45 a.m. We will travel to Mushroom Rock State Park and help move driftwood and pick up trash around the creek. They recommend boots and leather gloves. Please also bring a sack lunch, water bottle, and a pack to carry at least your water.

Mushroom Rock  State Park is one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas Geography.

After assisting for about 2.5 hours, we will eat our sack lunches and explore the trails. We will return to KWEC around 3 p.m. I can haul about 9 people in our KWEC van, others can carpool, follow, or meet us there.

Please let Mandy Kern, program specialist, know by Thursday, February 13 if you would like to participate. Email [email protected] or call 1-877-243-9268.
