About this Exploration:

When you step out of your car at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center at Cheyenne Bottoms, you are in the midst of the largest inland marsh in the United States.
 
From its ancient geological formation to its current challenges, dynamic exhibits reveal Cheyenne Bottoms. Stroll through the Center's exhibits that tell the story of the Central Flyway and the hundreds of thousands of migrating birds who stop here. 
 
Learn how this wetland is managed today and enjoy indoor wildlife watching in the mitigation marsh just outside the windows along the rear of the facility.  Free admission. Tuesday- Saturday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday 1- 5 p.m.
