Guided Konza Hike

Sunday, September 25, 2022

Come along for an immersive experience into the Flint Hills. Learn about the geological features of the Flint Hills, observe the native plant species, and see how fire helps contribute to the management of this ecosystem. Thanks to the Flint Hills Discovery Center Foundation, we will be transporting visitors in our new 15-passenger van from the Discovery Center to the Konza Prairie Biological Station.

Introductory hike of the Konza Prairie lowlands. 

Times include travel both ways. Ages 10 and older only on the van. Pre-registered families with younger children are welcome to join us at the trailhead. Please wear comfortable shoes, appropriate clothing, and sunscreen for daytime hikes. Please bring a water bottle. 

Cost is $8 for FHDC members and $10 for non-members, which includes the $2 per person suggested Nature Trail donation.

Spots are limited. Pre-registration is required online for all participants, including children, by 5 p.m. the day prior to the hike. Click here to register.
