Playa Field Tour & Workshop Registration
Want to know more about playas, the benefits they provide, and how to make them work for you? Register now for the 5th Annual Playa Lake Tour and Workshop, hosted by Ducks Unlimited, on January 12 and 13, 2021, at the Northwest Kansas Technical College in Goodland, Kansas. The event is free for landowners and tenants with playa lakes on their land and includes lunch both days. For others who would like to attend, there is a $50 fee.
Due to covid-19, social distancing and other precautions will be observed during the field tour, with participants driving their own vehicles to the playa sites. For the workshop portion, the college has also made accommodations to allow for social distancing, and there will be virtual conferencing options available as well for those who prefer not to attend in person. Participants will be notified by email if there are any changes to the schedule or if the event needs to be held virtually or is cancelled.
Thanks to our event sponsors, the Playa Field Tour & Workshop is free for landowners and land managers with playas on their land. For others who would like to attend, there is a $50 fee ($25 per day). Lunch is provided on both days and included with registration.

Will you attend the playa field tour on January 12?
The tour will start at 9am and end before 5pm. We will tour a few playas in Sherman County that are enrolled in various conservation programs. Attendees will see what playas may look like before, during, and after being accepted into a conservation program and using different management strategies to restore the health of a playa. There will also be opportunities to have open discussions about the pros and cons of each conservation program. Lunch is provided.
