The spirit of the byway can change your relationship with the world in a million ways. There are stories waiting to be told about one of Kansas’ greatest secrets - it is home to two of the largest wetland ecosystems in the world.

Story Ideas
As home to two of the largest wetlands ecosystems in the world, Kansas is an ecological wonderland of epic proportions with more than 60,000 acres of wetlands, prairie grass, salt marshes, sand dunes, canals, dikes, timber, and more than 300 species of birds.

Wetlands
All three parts of the Kansas Wetlands Complex have been designated Wetlands of International Importance by International Treaty.

Wildlife
There is nothing as inspiring as the sight of the whooping crane. Twice each year, these wetlands become the home for members of the only wild whooping crane flock in the world, which numbers around only 250.
