A wildlife walk on the Eddy-Ballentine and Blue River Glades trails in central Kansas City MO near Swope Park. About 2 miles, casual pace. Oak-Hickory forest and glades, with large outcroppings of Bethany Falls limestone. RSVP here (preferably) or by e-mailing me at [masked].
Outings like this are one way our local Sierra Club group raises money to fund operations. A donation of $2 would be gratefully accepted.
Parking is limited. The location shown on the map above is the south trail head where the hike will begin. There is enough space to park 5 or 6 cars there on the east shoulder of the road. About 100 feet north and on the west side of the road is a larger parking area next to the utility substation. A couple hundred feet further north and on the east shoulder is room for another 3 or 4 cars.
During the sign-in process all participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver. If you would like to read the Liability Waiver before you choose to participate in an outing, please go to: http://www.sierraclub.org/outings/chapter/forms/ .
