Walkabout/Talkabouts: KAW Council holds monthly walkabout/talkabouts: a chance to take a walk with old and new friends, exploring a particular place in our watershed and learning more about the other-than-human species among us. We also enjoy a potluck meal together, and often shares stories on a topic of interest related to the earth and sky. You are welcome to attend either or both the walkabout and talkabout on any of these dates. Great events for people of all ages.

Kaw Council spring Walkabout/Talkabouts — with the exception of the Wild East Lawrence walk (because it’s outside) — are cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. We will resume when it’s safe.

Wild East Lawrence Walk is a walk highlighting the native and ecological features of East Lawrence, including the topics of cool trees, the soils and geology of East Lawrence, and the seasonal highlights of birds, mammals, insects, reptiles and other wildlife found within/passing through the neighborhood. The walk will be led by naturalist and author Ken Lassman as part of the Songs & Stories of East Lawrence project with Kelley Hunt & Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg.

Please meet by gazebo at South Park at 2 p.m., and we will walk through East Lawrence to Burroughs Creek Park and back. People needing a shorter walk may meet us at the entrance to Burroughs Creek Park.
