Tallgrass Tour Bus: Tallgrass Prairie Nature & Heritage

Saturday, May 16, 2020

Explore the Flint Hills and beyond with the Tallgrass Tour Bus! Join the Discovery Center as we embark on day trips to exciting locations in central Kansas.

Join us for a scenic day trip to the heart of the Flint Hills. The Tallgrass Tour Bus will take you south from Manhattan to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve where you will be treated to a guided tour of the bison pastures as well as the Spring Hill Ranch headquarters for a trip back to the 1800's. For lunch, we will head back north to Council Grove where we will dine at Hay's House, which is a Registered National Historic Landmark and known regionally for its wonderful atmosphere. We will enjoy some points of interest in Council Grove, including the campsite of General Custer and the site of the town's namesake. 

Round trip travel and tour fees are provided. Participants are responsible for lunch fee. Youth under 18 must be accompanied by adult. Tour leaves the Flint Hills Discovery Center at 8:00 AM and returns no later than 2:30 PM.
