The Wetland Explorer

One of the best parts about working at Cheyenne Bottoms is talking with visitors that stop here. One thing staff at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center have noticed is that almost everyone has a story about Cheyenne Bottoms. If you follow the news items posted in the Great Bend Tribune, you know that most stories about Cheyenne Bottoms logically include information about birds, bird-watching, hunting, and wildlife; that is what Cheyenne Bottoms is famous for. However, some of the most interesting stories and memories we get to hear from visitors to the Kansas Wetlands Education Center concerning Cheyenne Bottoms have ...

A forester once told me that you know a drought is severe if you see Red Cedar trees dying. All around the county, you can see Cedars in tree rows and windbreaks dead and brown.

Farming January 2015 vs. January 1914 – Part 2

Last week's column briefly discussed some of the reasons for the large changes in agriculture over the last century. Drivers for change included two World Wars, the Great Depression, economic conditions after WWII, and the Federal Government. One reader pointed out that the column almost painted war as a good thing for agriculture. That wasn't the intent. The fact is the driver for change and the development of new techniques and technologies is typically an event or events forcing and accelerating change. Now, how did events change farming over the last century.

Consumers who are interested in getting the most bang for their buck (and who isn't?) know to watch for sales. Most of us notice the patterns over time – holiday items on sale right after the holiday passes and white sales in January, for instance.
