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.
