Konza Environmental Education Program

Interested in Becoming a Docent?

The Konza Prairie Docent Program offers specialized training for community members interested in volunteering at Konza Prairie and learning about tallgrass prairie research and ecology.  Trained docents guide hikes and driving tours for public and school groups visiting Konza Prairie.  Other opportunities include helping with work days and special projects, as well as attending educational in-services and social events.
