Safaris

 

Nineteen cars, two motorcycles, and about 75 people gathered many fossils of several species on SE Kansas Safari.

 

Fun, educational, recreational, and God-honoring

 

Several safaris not held last year are returning to this year’s schedule.  We are modifying our first safari to southeastern Kansas to include a return visit to “Big Brutus,” and also to Pitcher, Oklahoma. Our December Squaw Creek safari will be held earlier this year, in hopes of foregoing weather issues we encountered in our December, 2013 trip. Hopefully we’ll see more snow geese, yet still catch a glimpse of some eagles.

 

*Please note: Astronomy Safaris are held (weather permitting) at The Berry Patch, 22509 State Line Road, in Cleveland, Missouri. Each safari consists of an inspiring slide seminar, followed by a tour of the heavens using tracking telescopes and binoculars. Don't wait to see if the weather will permit.  Instead, sign up, and we’ll contact you if we decide to cancel.

We will camp two nights in Ellis, with side trips the next two days, to explore the Niobrara chalk country for clams, sharks teeth, fish fossils and maybe a mosasuar. The final day, south of Oakley, the chalk monuments are outstanding, and make some stunning photos

June 10 (Saturday) - Photo/Nature Hike at O.P. Arboretum

Join us for a nature hike and photo safari in the botanical gardens and nature trails of the Overland Park Arboretum. Not a photo bug? We’ll present some basic photo techniques to help get you started. We’ll also discuss God's wonderful creation and suggest photo subjects so you can share what you’ve learned by posting photos on Facebook, other social media, e-mails, or perhaps by simply sharing them in a slide show for your Sunday school class or other venue. So pack your camera, water, trail mix, and comfortable shoes, and join us as we learn to appreciate God's wonderful creation. See our Safari details for more info on costs.

 

June 22-24 (Thursday - Saturday) - Ozark Stream Float - Elk River

A beautiful river that will provide family fun, fishing, and fellowship. By getting there on Thursday and floating on Friday, we miss most of the noisy groups, which makes for better canoeing and fishing.

Note: Registration for this safari must be made as early as possible and requires you to contact the outfitter to arrange canoes for your party. See our Safari detail booklet for more info on costs.

 

June 24 (Saturday 8:45 PM) - Astronomy*

 

July 22 (Saturday) - KU Natural History Museum

This very popular safari is back. In 2013 we did it three times. Yet once more, we'll enter “evolutions cathedral” to unmask its misleading displays and show that the same evidence better supports creation. We’ll also do some fossil hunting on the way there, so that you can collect some evidence of your own.

December 2 (Saturday) - Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge Eagle Days

Depending on the weather, we’ll see somewhere around 400,000 snow geese and 124 bald eagles, along with ducks, herons, and trumpeter swans. This is a bird lover's paradise. Although it can get quite cold, it's well worth bundling up for. We'll fossil-hunt on the way. We'll stop to view and discuss some ice-age loess soil. We’ll also discuss migration patterns, and the “dinosaur-to-bird” evolution story. There will be eagle viewing and other programs for Eagle Days. Depending on weather and bird counts, we might visit other nearby sites for further viewing.
