Maxwell elk herd tour Jan. 17

Tours begin at 10 a.m., courtesy of Friends of Maxwell

 

Join the Friends of Maxwell on Jan. 17 in a unique tour of public land elk at the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge, 2565 Pueblo Road, Canton. Tours of the 2,200-acre enclosure will begin at 10 a.m. and are by reservation-only. An elk chili lunch will be offered after the tour, both of which are offered at no cost, however donations are appreciated.

Maxwell Wildlife Refuge is located six miles north of Canton, in the very southeastern tip of the scenic Smoky Hills, an area of large rolling hills. It is the only location in Kansas where public herds of both bison and elk can be viewed in a native prairie environment, and it’s also home to the state’s largest public herd of bison.
