2018 ONAPA MEMBER FIELD TRIP REPORTS
ONAPA Members Went to Kansas . . . See What You Missed!
ONAPA held another wonderful out-of-state trip this year (our third trip) to Kansas to visit some of the prairies in the eastern part of the state during June 12-14th. Twenty-four ONAPA members participated, including Guy Denny, Dick Moseley, and Jennifer Windus as trip leaders. We visited the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve near Emporia, the Flint Hills Discovery Center in Manhattan, and Konza Prairie near Manhattan. All three sites were spectacular, despite the heat, chiggers, and ticks. We saw a wide variety of prairie plants, as well as bison, collared lizards, ornate box turtles, and scissor-tailed flycatchers. Here are a few photos from the trip, but we will show more at the ONAPA Annual Meeting on August 18th!
