Friends of Cheyenne Bottoms/Kansas Wildscapes


 The Friends of Cheyenne Bottoms was established in 2009 as a non-profit organization with the mission of promoting Cheyenne Bottoms for education, tourism and conservation.


The Friends of Cheyenne Bottoms was planning to host a Youth Outdoor Day in August 2020. The purpose of the event was to give kids the chance to shoot .22s, test their fishing skills and be exposed to air rifles, bow & arrows and trap shooting. Logistics for maintaining social distance and the ability to clean & disinfect the items that would be used by the participants led us to postpone this event for now. We are hopeful that we will be able to safely hold this event in 2021.


The other "big" project that the Friends is proud to be a part of is the Second Grade Education Day at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center. Each year, approximately 400 second grade students from Barton County take part in this fun & educational day. As of now, the Kansas Wetlands Education Center is looking at an on-line virtual Educational program for the Second Graders this year, with support from the Friends Group.


This pandemic has been trying in many ways and the upheaval of plans has an impact on everyone.  Your Support will enable the Friends of Cheyenne Bottoms to be ready to hit the ground running as soon as we can do so safely.
