Slate Creek Wetland Public Announcement

Due to some erosion problems at the wetland, we will not be able to hold water for the 2021-22 waterfowl season.  There will be some water in the pools, it will be just in the low-lying areas.  But all of this will depend on rain fall.  The low water levels will allow us time to get some valuable imagery/survey of the area.  This will help us resolve current erosion issues and help us map the whole wetland system for future development.  We thank you for your understanding and patience.

Hunters can check-in / check-out here, https://ksoutdoors.com/checkin using your licensing login credentials.
