KHS Field Trips
The KHS hosts two or more field trips each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Field trips serve to broaden understanding of the distribution and abundance of various species in Kansas. In addition, field trips are an enjoyable educational experience for everyone. All interested persons are invited to attend.
While most specimens observed and counted during the KHS field trip will be released, selected specimens also will be collected by individuals with current Kansas Scientific Collecting Permits and kept for deposition in research collections at accredited institutions, where they (and their tissues) will be available for research use by any qualified investigators. Field trip participants wishing to assist in this research effort are encouraged to donate their specimens to those individuals qualified to receive them.
