A Corps of Engineers lake located in north-central Oklahoma, Kaw Lake offers boating, fishing, picnicking, and camping. There are many coves and inlets to explore, several trails for hiking, and an abundance of clean, fresh air and sparkling water. It was a great place view nesting eagles in winter, enjoy fishing in the spring and summer, and to participate in BioBlitz! 2010 in the crisp, cool autumn air!
Tucked inbetween Osage and Kay counties, we found find a variety of habitats in the Kaw Lake Wildlife Management Areas and Army Corps of Engineer lands – tallgrass prairie remnants, Cross Timbers, wetlands, bottomland forest, and, of course, aquatic habitats that awaited inventory by the BioBlitz! team of volunteer scientists.
