Celebrate Earth Day at Cedar Bluff State Park

Trego - Earth Day.jpgThere’s been a lot of rain in Western Kansas lately, and it shows in our green hills, colorful wildflowers, and the rushing waters of our creeks and streams. To celebrate this beautiful awakening of our prairie come out to Cedar Bluff State Park this Saturday, April 23rd for their Earth Day hike!

Bring your binoculars, because there are many chances to spot wildlife throughout the park. Look for deer and rabbits racing across higher ground, and along the creek bed keep your eyes peeled for frisky fish flip-flopping in the water. And for the “birders” in your family, you’ll also want to put on your listening ears so to overhear the conversations of the many songbirds that live in our park, like meadowlarks and red-winged blackbirds, and birds of prey, like eagles and hawks.

Stop by the Park Office first so your kids can make their own trail mix and a backyard bird feeder, then head the White Tail Camp Area to find Agave Ridge’s trailhead. It’s a five-mile, partially paved, level walking trail located on the south side of Cedar Bluff, our most untouched setting. There are many shade trees and beautiful views of the white limestone bluffs along the trail, so all hiking levels are accommodated.

Celebrate the beauty of our planet and the Trego County prairie at the Cedar Bluff State Park’s-Earth Day celebration. The Park Office will be open from 8am to 4pm, with activities for the kids and maps for the grown-ups. Vehicle entrance to the park will be free all day, so plan to stick around for one of Kansas’s world famous sunsets!Trego - Earth Day.png
