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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: 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.
