The Kansas Landscape Arboretum can be found just south of Wakefield. Courtesy photo.
Although the area is managed for plant life, wildlife can also be seen such as deer, eastern bluebirds, northern cardinals, blue jays and several species of woodpeckers. The pond on the Bird Sanctuary Trails often times has wood ducks and green herons.
The causeway at the north end of the reservoir is one of the best sites for wildlife viewing. In addition to numerous bald eagles, flocks of white pelicans, ducks, geese, grebes, gulls and shorebirds are abundant during migrations.
Four short trails around the arboretum are available to walk along. For more information, go to https://www.travelks.com/listing/kansas-landscape-arboretum/462/.
