Quivira National Wildlife Refuge

One of the "Eight Wonders of Kansas," the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge is located northwest of Wichita near the town of Stafford. The refuge was created in 1955 to provide wintering and migration stopover habitat for migratory birds along the Central Flyway of North America. The prairie grasslands and nearly 7,000 acres of wetlands at the refuge provide important habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Several native plant species from the refuge have been identified as being particularly useful for making phenological observations.
