Saturday we'll be meeting at McPherson Valley Wetlands first, then proceeding to the Uplands for lunch. Just a reminder that we've gotten rain so the bugs are out and the ground is wet! Wear sturdy shoes and bring sunscreen and bug spray! We will have refreshments available for attendees.
Join us June 10th and 11th for our first in-person gathering since 2019!
Friday, June 10th, we'll be out at the 365 Sports Complex in Inman to kick things off with a pint night and Cornhole tournament! The tournament format will be single-elimination, with a consolation bracket for all first round losers so all entrants play at least 2 games. 1st-3rd place winners of the tournament will receive cash prizes, and the winner of the consolation bracket will also receive a prize! We'll also have a silent auction with a wide variety of items for the whole family up for grabs, including many items donated by local McPherson businesses! Other yard games will also be available for those not playing in the tournament. Tickets for Friday's events are $5 for the pint night only, $15 for individual tournament registration, and $30 for team.
Saturday, June 11th, come on out to McPherson Valley Wetlands Wildlife Area for information about implementing prescribed fire safely on your property, followed up by a small demo prescribed burn. We'll have a variety of habitat management equipment on display as well! Our Habitat Specialists, Farm Bill Biologists, and a number of partner agency staff will be on hand to answer all your habitat management questions, so come armed with any habitat challenges you need assistance with. BBQ lunch will be included with registration! After lunch we'll be heading over to the McPherson Valley Uplands Learning Center to have some interactive breakout sessions, including a plant & pollinator ID walk - the chapter recently conducted a prescribed burn on this property, come check out their fantastic results! We'll be wrapping up with a trap shoot at the Uplands. Registration is only $5 for Saturday!
We hope to see you there!
