The demonstration farm is the newest addition to the Audubon of Kansas (AOK) sanctuaries. Located southwest of Lincoln, it consists of 240 acres with cultivated fields, prairie meadows, streams and woodlands. The AOK will utilize the property to demonstrate how land can be farmed but also be very good habitat for wildlife and native plants. Picnic tables have been placed in the southeast corner of the property on an overlook.  Be sure to bring binoculars to view various bird species.  For more information, and the story of Connie Achterberg’s farm, please visit the AOK’s website at:  https://www.audubonofkansas.org/established-sanctuaries-.cfm
