About this Exploration:

McPherson Valley Wetlands

Pheasant, dove and quail are huntable in season at the McPherson Valley Wetlands. The wetlands are located north of McPherson.

Before their destruction by ditching, the wetlands of west central McPherson County comprised more than 9,000 surface acres of water in at least 52 separate wetlands, and were equal in importance to Cheyenne Bottoms.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) recognized the need to restore portions of this vital wetland complex and started buying land for development in 1989. To date, the area is 4,455 acres.

Due to concentrated waterfowl, the wetlands were an important area for waterfowl market hunters. In pre-1900, market hunters would hunt with horse and buggy across the north shore of the Big Basin, turn south and end up at the Conway train station with a wagonload of ducks.
