The Toxic Blue-Green Algae Responsible For Killing Dogs Around The U.S. Has Been Found In Kansas

Kansas is no stranger to blue-green algae and how it infests our waters almost every summer. All of our favorite lakes turn slimy, and people disregard the very real warnings given out only to realize that the risks are real. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has issued warnings and watches for many of our favorite lakes and ponds. Read on for the details.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

It’s sad to know that we’re kept from some of our favorite areas of our state when the weather is so nice, but there are other ways to get your Kansas nature fix. To still enjoy our beautiful nature without getting into the water, check out this scenic drive that gets even more beautiful in the spring and fall when shorebirds are migrating.
