GPNC Hosts Walk With Wildlife

Contact: Darah Jewett, Volunteer & Event Coordinator |

​Learn about the Hectic Habitats of Kansas

The Great Plains Nature Center, in partnership with Spirit AeroSystems, welcomes the community to its annual Walk With Wildlife event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 20th at 6232 E. 29th St. North in Wichita.

This outdoor event will give visitors a chance to see animal ambassadors from an array of Kansas conservation and rehabilitation organizations up close as they walk along the Quail Trail in the park. Naturalists will be on hand to teach about native and invasive Kansas animals, their diverse habitats, and how it all works together.

"This event is an excellent opportunity for people to see things they might not otherwise have a chance to see as closely anywhere near here. We'll have experts talking about a range of wildlife from waterbirds and pond life to insects, amphibians, and mammals.," says Darah Jewell, Volunteer and Event Coordinator of the GPNC. "It's perfect for all ages."

Admission for this event is $10 per car load. Spirit AeroSystems will sponsor a concession stand during the event. Find more information at
