PRATT ­– The Kansas Alliance for Wetlands and Streams (KAWS) invites landowners, land managers and the public to attend the 2018 Playa Lakes Tour and Workshop Jan. 9-10, 2018 in Colby. This two-day informational event will be broken into two parts: a field tour of Wallace and Greeley Counties on Jan. 9 and a workshop on Jan. 10 featuring special guest speakers and playa lake experts. Registration and lunch is free for playa lake landowners and $50 per person for all other participants.

The playa lake landowner site tour in Wallace and Greeley counties will demonstrate how playa lakes can be managed in effective and efficient ways for better conservation, management, recharge and recreational enjoyment.

The Playa Lake Workshop at the Kansas Prairie Museum in Colby will feature guest speakers with decades of playa lake experience in management, ecology, hydrology research, and program cost delivery. In addition, four local playa lake landowners will share their experiences with playa lakes on their farms and ranches, and several speakers will provide pertinent information regarding program cost delivery.
