Connie Achterberg Wildlife-Friendly Demonstration Farm
This 240-acre property is a very special central-Kansas farm in Lincoln County. As an established sanctuary of the Audubon of Kansas, the property is a well-managed and beautiful piece of ground. Creeks meander through substantial forest and diverse habitats that were once common on Kansas farms. Audubon of Kansas has planted filter strips of native grasses and wildflowers along the edge of every field. Pollinator habitat complements an eight-acre remnant prairie meadow. Brown Thrashers, Wild Turkeys, kingbirds, woodpeckers, and wrens are among the regular bird species that frequent the property in addition to whitetail deer.
Picnic tables are available on the southeast overlook. There are no restroom facilities on the property. Please leave no trace (carry out all garbage including toilet paper).
While we currently are not able to offer lodging, hotels can easily be found in Ellsworth (23 miles) and Salina (45 miles). Or support the local Post Rock Motel with an amazingly delicious restaurant featuring Himalayan cuisine .
