October 22 - Please join us for our 2nd Annual old fashioned outdoor Halloween party. This event is designed to draw families out to the Smoky Hills Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary for old fashioned family fun. It was by far our best attended event of the year in 2021. Many parents remarked it was one of the favorites. This year we have lined up a food truck so people can make a day of it. Come all dressed up in your Halloween costumes. Don’t have one? That’s fine, don’t worry, just be here because you're going to enjoy the costumes and the children having fun! Hayrides will be offered through the prairie throughout the day. We will also have maps so that you can go out on an adventure of your own on one of our many hiking trails. As the sun goes down the hayride will change its destination to the drop off families for a spooky walk through the hedge row. No telling who or what may be waiting in there to entertain you! Suitable for young children but still exciting for all ages.
November 17 - Smoky Hills Audubon has never had a program with the word “Bees” in the topic that was not well attended. There is something about the underground network of beekeepers and honey consumers that makes sure the word gets out. Our program will begin at 7:30 in our normal meeting place, Room 229 in the Peters Science Hall. If you would like to come early we should have the doors open by 7 and you can join fellow enthusiasts of the hobby (or business) to visit.
December 15 - Informative Chuck Otte will return for a lively program about birds
December 17 The annual Christmas Bird Count. Byron Grauerholz will lead the volunteers through the bird count experience.
