Baker University Wetlands

Baker University Wetlands

It was once said that Baker University Wetlands is the most beautiful place in Kansas, and we agree! The Baker University Wetlands are one of the most diverse habitats in all of Kansas. A whopping 278 species of birds, 98 other vertebrate species, and 487 plant species have been identified at the Wetlands. 

The Wetlands are operated by Baker University and are available for students and everyone else to explore daily from dusk till dawn. 

Hike the wetlands on more than eleven miles of trails. Pets are welcome to join you (dogs must remain leashed). Plan your hiking trip with this map:
