Explore Kansas’s Everglades At This Underrated Wildlife Refuge

When it comes to Sunflower State landscapes, our plains are by far the most famous. Kansas is practically synonymous with “flat,” even though we have our beautiful Flint Hills. However, there’s one other major landscape in Kansas that often gets ignored: our wetlands. A good portion of the state is made up of marshy wetlands that bring to mind the famous Florida Everglades. One of the best places to see wetlands in Kansas is the stunning Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. This south-central Kansas park is an amazing spot that spans more than 22,000 acres and is considered one of the Eight Natural Wonders of Kansas, along with the nearby Cheyenne Bottoms wetlands.

You can learn more about this amazing wetland in Kansas from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service site.
