If you can help man our booth for any of these events please contact the Kansas Riverkeeper by email or phone (785 312 7200.)
Can’t volunteer this time? You can still stop by to learn about the Kansas River and may other conservation organizations, and take advantage of an opportunity to view the eagles and get ready for spring paddling!
Wild and Scenic Film Festival
Friends of the Kaw also needs volunteers to help plan and promote the Wild and Scenic Film Festival scheduled for May 1 at Liberty Hall, as well as volunteers who would like to view and rank the films that are available for this event. Again, if you can help, please contact the Kansas Riverkeeper by email or phone (785 312 7200.)
