Many of the photos were taken during some of the ten Chikaskia River Wildlife Studies that were held from 1977 to 1986. The
events were organized by Larry Miller (Caldwell, Kansas), Gene Trott (Hunnewell, Kansas), and Marty Capron (Oxford, Kansas)
in an effort to better educate the public about the Chikaskia ecosystem and our environent in general.
Chikaskia River Wildlife Studies brought together a diversity of people from wildlife organiztions, universities, educational
groups, and environmental organizations. Several hundred people attended during the ten year period.
Most of the
activities were held on private land. The success of the Chikaskia River Wildlife Studies would not have been possible without
the cooperation of several land owners
