KWEC - Prairie Chicken Lek Tours
Thursday, March 23, 2023
In the early hours of spring mornings across the prairies, a performance for the ages must go on. Prairie-Chickens are busy putting on a show that is critical to their survival. Male Prairie-Chickens strut around on communal mating grounds known as “leks,” where they fight, call, and dance to win the affection of females. It is one of the most fascinating and unique natural phenomenon people can watch. Lek tours draw people from around the world each year to the Great Plains.
The Kansas Wetlands Education Center at Cheyenne Bottoms, invites you to come and witness this wonderful show during a Greater Prairie-Chicken Lek Tour. Tours are available to the public on select days from mid-March through mid-April by reservation only. Tours are $40 per person. Call the KWEC 877-243-9268 to register and receive more information.
Tour dates are: Thurs., March 23; Sat., March 25; Mon., March 27; Wed., March 29.
