Our Programs

events & activities

Wildscape defines a “program” as an effort that may or may not have any end and tends to lean more towards a structured format with events and/or activities. A Wildscape “project” is an effort on our part that has a beginning and an end, such as the Milford Wetlands Restoration.

Wildscape works hand-in-hand with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks to identify programs that will not be funded without private sector support and weighs the merits of those programs, determining how they can be funded. And then we help get the job done.

From our Outdoor Kansas for Kids (OKKids) to the Kansas WildLifer Challenge, Wildscape is instrumental in promoting outdoor activities throughout Kansas.

Below are a few of our current programs:
