Make plans now to attend the KOS Spring Meeting in southern Kansas, May 6-8, 2016. Camp Horizon sits east of Arkansas City in a nicely wooded area just north of the Arkansas River and about 2.5 miles north of Oklahoma. This is a very birdy location!

Directions to the camp - Starting from the intersection of the Highway 77 bypass and Madison Avenue, drive 3.2 miles on Madison Avenue, which becomes 292nd Road. At the fork, turn right (south) onto 296th Road. Drive 2.4 miles. Turn right (south) onto Horizon Drive at the sign and go 1 mile to camp entrance. It is well marked and shouldn't be a problem. Check in at the Welcome Center at the camp. Address is 30811 Horizon Drive, Arkansas City.

Friday evening: We will have a casual meet and greet with snacks at Camp Horizon from 6-8pm.

Saturday May, 7th: After all-day field trips, we will have our evening meal at the Camp. Possible field trips include Slate Creek Marsh, Kaw Wildlife Area, Cowley State Fishing Lake and maybe even some forays into Oklahoma!

Note: Saturday lunch is to be on your own.  Trip leaders will provide snack/lunch stops along the way; though options may be limited.

Saturday evening: After the dinner at Camp Horizon, Bob Gress will be presenting a program titled, “Wildlife Down Under”. Like all of Bob’s programs, it will be amazing!

Sunday: After a ฝ day of birding, we’ll have a box lunch compilation (sub sandwiches, veggie option available – please indicate your desire for this option on the registration form) of the birds seen on all the field trips. Location to be announced.

Accommodations: There are three options for accommodations. The following options and prices are for both nights lodging and include Saturday and Sunday breakfast and the Saturday evening dinner.

Renewal Lodge - This lodge houses 2 to 4 people per room and bedding is supplied. There are a limited number of rooms so first come first served. Indicate who you will be rooming with. We will not do room assignments – you must tell us. Once Renewal Lodge is filled we will move subsequent reservations to Cedars and issue you a refund for the difference. You will be notified of this change.

Cedars Lodges – This is more traditional camp housing and you will need to bring your own bedding.

Tent camping – modern shower house nearby.

If you are staying elsewhere, we do have a meal package with two breakfasts and Saturday dinner so you can dine with the rest of the attendees at the camp. You will also need to order a Sunday lunch for the compilation, or bring your own lunch.

It is recommended that everyone plan to stay at the camp as motel options in the area will be limited due to the Kansas Sampler that is occurring in nearby Winfield this same weekend.
