Cheyenne Bottoms/ Quivira National Wildlife Refuge

As promised, here is the second of the 8 Wonders of Kansas , alphabetically, based on a national survey sponsored by the Kansas Sampler Foundation, as announced by the Governor at Kansas Day, the 147th Birthday of Kansas, on Tuesday, 29 Jan 2008.

In Barton and Stafford Counties, the Kansas Wetland Complex of Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge is a vital migratory stop for North American shorebirds. Less than twenty miles apart, a good way to view both is to drive the Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway.

While you are in the neighborhood, head a few miles east and visit the Kansas Flint Hills, as well!

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
