Great Plains Nature Photographers meeting this fall will be held in Wichita on November 22nd. See minutes for the July meeting for details.

 Savanahland has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 6, 2003 from 5-7 PM. They have changed their policy and now are open to the public during the day. In order to have a private party (20+) we had to schedule it for the evening.  If it rains, they will let us come for 1 hour, 5-6 pm, and have the chimp at the covered pavilion.  The price is $10.50 per person for two hours – I think they will charge less for one hour. Their email address is:
