50 Plus plans Walk on the Konza Prairie on Nov. 7
POSTED: 10/17/2012
 
An opportunity to walk on the Konza Prairie Trail near Manhattan, Kan., is being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in early November.

The program is called Konza Prairie Trail and will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 7. The Konza Prairie preserves 8,616 acres of prairie winding through the Flint Hills of central Kansas. Participants will hike the nature trail and the King's Creek loop for an adventure of 4.7 miles or less. There are steep hills involved, but the view is well worth the effort and makes this one of the most popular destinations of JCPRD walking programs.

To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “Walking Wednesday.”

This program will depart at 8 a.m. from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam. The cost for this eight -hour outing, including van transportation to the walk site, is $23 per person for Johnson County residents or $25 for nonresidents. After the walk, the group will eat lunch and at the well-known Little Apple Brewery, where lunch costs will be on your own.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.

The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pick-up at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com
