Wolf Creek Environmental Education Area provides an excellent opportunity to experience and learn about the nature of eastern Kansas. This area is a place to relax and take the time to notice the characteristics and interactions of plants and animals.
The Area is open from dawn to dusk, year-round.
The area also consists of 5 trails that guide you through a wide variety of Kansas habitats. Wildlife variety and abundance is high at the Environmental Education Area. Viewing opportunities for bald eagle and osprey are just two examples.
A bald eagle pair has successfully nested at the lake since 1994.
Osprey have been released at the Environmental Education Area since 1996 in an attempt to establish a nesting population. This is a program of the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, Western Resources and Wolf Creek employees.
