Wetlands

When you think of Kansas, do you think of endless prairie? wheat? Dorothy? Think again. The 77-mile Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway connects two of the world's most significant natural wetlands-Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. More than 60,000 acres of wetlands host millions of migrating birds each year. Along its route, the Byway crosses a third iconic stretch of water- the Arkansas River. Affected by seasons, weather, and human use, these wetlands are in a constant state of motion and change.
