Log Description

Kings Creek flows through Konza Prairie and eventually joins McDowell Creek and, later, the Kansas River. Kings Creek originates on Konza and the flow is comprised of water that runs off the hills as well as cool spring water. The water quality is superior and, because of that, there are many organisms living in and near the creek. This creek is a U.S. Geological Survey benchmark creek for the tallgrass prairie - which means it is the standard by which all other tallgrass prairie creeks are measured. Please help us keep this creek healthy and beautiful.
