Foundation dedicated to wildlife and outdoor recreation

LAWRENCE - Kansas Wildscape Foundation has announced the creation of a new website - www.kansaswildscape.org - which will feature the organization's projects and fundraising activities, as well as information on how people can be more involved in these efforts.

Kansas Wildscape, a 501 c (3) organization, was founded in 1991 in coordination with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP). The foundation is dedicated to raising funds and accepting other tax deductible donations to benefit wildlife and outdoor recreation needs in Kansas. Current projects include the building of rental cabins at state parks, Outdoor Kansas for Kids (OKKids) programs, and helping KDWP, Ft. Hays State University, and other organizations build the Kansas Wetlands Educational Center at Cheyenne Bottoms.

The foundation's annual fundraiser, the Governor's Golfing and Fishing Classic, will be held at Milford Reservoir and Rolling Meadows Golf Course in Junction City on June 16-17.

The public is invited to visit this new website - www.kansaswildscape.org - for more information on current projects and events, and for details on how to become a member.
