Christmas on the Prairie

  • Maxwell Wildlife Refuge

    Highway 86, Canton , KS (map)

    38.377598 -97.427116

  • Come for a 45 minute prairie tour of Maxwell's Bison and Elk. The elk venture out of the cool shade of the trees and present themselves during the winter season.

    I will make a group reservation a week before the event and will set the time when I make a reservations on December 10th. Your are most welcome to make you own reservation after this date but let me know you are coming so we look for you. https://www.maxwellwildliferefuge.com/contact.html I am going to try for a time between 11:30-2:00. This place is 1 1/2 hours from Manhattan and you Manhattanites can form a car pool. I live in Chapman so I can meet everyone there. You will be so close to the buffalo you could touch them but I do not advise you try. Not sure if they are charging for this tour (sometimes they just ask for donations) but the prices for tours are Adults: $8, Kids under 12: $ 5 and Kids under 4: Free. This place is run by mostly volunteers that are really great. This will be a winter ride so it can be very cold in the exposed prairie but they do have plastic enclosed trams. Still, I advise you to dress very warmly in layers and maybe bring a blanket.

    I really enjoyed seeing the bison on a prior trip Lisa organized, and have talked my parents into going this time.
