Prescribed Prairie Burning Season Has Begun 

Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve announced its prescribed fire season beginning now through April, weather conditions and moisture levels permitting.  Prescribed fire is one method used to promote a healthy prairie and maintain the cultural landscape of the preserve.  It is also used by preserve land managers to control woody vegetation and promote native plant and animal diversity. Prescribed fire is a partnership operation involving The Nature Conservancy, the National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Learn more about fire by going to the preserve’s website and clicking on the Nature section.

Våffeldagen, International Waffle Day In Lindsborg

Welcome spring with hot waffles, waffle treats and waffle humor (yes, there is such a thing) during Lindsborg Våffeldagen on Saturday, March 26.

Literally translated from the Swedish, Våffeldagen means waffle day. In fact, across much of Europe, waffles are served and eaten on that day. In Lindsborg, Våffeldagen means waffles for breakfast, lunch, and supper, as well as for desserts and yes, drinks! Some form of waffle taste will be available in Lindsborg between 6:00am and 8:00pm.

Humor, photo booth, fun and games will be found throughout Lindsborg, including a first-ever Walk of the Waffle Wearables!

Dalton Brothers Gang

Three Daltons, Bob, Grat and Emmet, Dick Broadwell and Bill Powers wanted to do what no one had ever done before – rob two banks at the same time. After camping on Onion Creek, west of Coffeyville, they rode into town on horseback heading east on Eighth Street early on the morning of October 5, 1892. The Dalton brothers, being former residents of Coffeyville, wore disguises. They had planned to tie their horses between the two banks, but because Eighth Street was torn up, they tied them in the alley close to the jail. That was their first mistake…

Explore Northwest Kansas

Things can get rocky in northwest Kansas, where the chalky pillars and craggy canyons of Little Jerusalem Badlands State Park, Arikaree Breaks and Monument Rocks interrupt the panoramas of plains. Set out from the college town of Hays and its bustling downtown. Just off Interstate-70, Hays forms the perfect eastern gateway to the region’s untamed vistas. Beyond, discover small towns that boast an assortment of dining options; museums that recall Buffalo Bill and cavalry forts; and those jarring, jutting rocks that resemble castles on the vast horizon.
