Coffey County Wildflower tour

KNPS is continuing to help organize County wide wildflower tour events in 2008. This year KNPS is working for the first time with Coffey County on their their wildflower tour scheduled for May 31st. The tour area will be near New Strawn north of Burlington and will be followed by a free cookout lunch.
The county wide wildflower tours are an excellent opportunity to view and learn about wildflowers in the company of other wildflower enthusiasts and educators. Each county provides an opportunity to see different types of wildflowers in different soil types and regional growing characteristics. KNPS is working to gather information on other amenities each county has to offer in terms of lodging, dining, shopping and area attractions you may enjoy in conjunction with a wildflower tour.
Please check our the KNPS events calendar: for County wide wildflower tours currently scheduled for Barber, Coffey, Comanche, Cowley, Neosho and Wilson Counties. We will be adding links on our calendar web page to more information you can use to plan an enjoyable day with wildflowers. June is always a very busy month so check the online calendar for updates and deadlines for registering for wildflower tour events. Make a day of it!
