Welcome to Ninnescah Life

“Ninnescah Life” is a portal to the plants, animals, and people who live and work in and around the Ninnescah River region of south central Kansas.
The upland prairies, red hills, sand prairies, forested creeks, and river valleys are excellent sites for migrating birds, wildlife, and native flora. The Ninnescah River watershed unites Wichita State University’s Biological Reserves: the Ninnescah Reserve, Sellers Reserve and Gerber Reserve. Wichita States Reserves provide a connection with wildlife and plant life in the region, with the mission of research, teaching, conservation, and public outreach.
