If you love to travel Kansas and see the spectacular plants and animals our state has to offer, Watching Kansas Wildlife: A Guide to 101 Sites by Bob Gress and George Potts may be a book you’ll want to keep in your car.

Watching Kansas Wildlife

After an introduction to wildlife viewing, Watching Kansas Wildlife lists 101 of the best places to see wildlife in Kansas, whatever your interest is:

Each concise entry makes it easy to see at a glance what the various destinations have to offer. You’ll not only find directions and contact information for each site, but you’ll also see a brief synopsis of the best times and places to view your favorite wildlife species.

Granted, this book is no longer entirely up to date (for instance, several state parks have been created and the Great Plains Nature Center has been constructed at Chisholm Creek Park since publication). Still, there is enough material here to get you started exploring the nature of Kansas.

Unique little book! A concise companion for planning outdoor excursions.
