October Meeting

Friends of the Kaw: Past, Present & Future

"Friends of the Kaw: Past, Present & Future," will be the topic for October’s JAS program, which will be held October 26, at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Luthern Fellowship Hall, 811 Mass, Lawrence.

The program brings a trio of impassioned paddlers, Dawn Buehler, Laura Calwell, & Mike Calwell, to tell us about the formation, accomplishments & future plans of the Friends of the Kaw. Highlights will be FOK’s ongoing efforts to improve recreation on the river, and to move commercial in-river dredg ers to pit mines on land. Come hear their vision for our river.

JAS October and November Field Trips

Time to hit the trails again and do some birding. The JAS has field trips scheduled over the next two months to Clinton Reservoir, Lone Star Lake, Baker Wetlands, Perry Lake, and Squaw Cree National Wildlife Refuge.

As usual, we'll bring a scope or two, a couple extra pair of binoculars and field guides. Dress for the weather and bring any snacks or water bottles along as you see fit. Most of these trips will be over by Noon. We'll also start to explore using different birding apps in anticipation of the spring JAS program regarding such birding tools. Contact Chuck Herman with any questions or concerns – hermansnuthouse@earthlink.net or 913-484-8932.
