K-State Division of Biology

Student Organizations

Biology clubs and organizations which cover a broad area of biological science fields are available to interested students.  They serve as a means of meeting students of like interest, a means of meeting professional biologists in an informal setting and as an excellent way to find out about career opportunities (and what it takes to realize those opportunities) in the student's area of interest.

If you are looking for a group of local people that can help you learn to be a better birder or are interested in the local birding hotspots, the Northern Flint Hills Audubon is a good group to know.  We are the local chapter of the National Audubon Society. We go birding together Sept.-May every second Sat. of the month.  You do not need to be a member of National Audubon to participate. Our newsletter, "The Prairie Falcon" is available on line to keep you informed of our activities. 

We advocate prairie preservation through our maintenance of a butterfly garden and a restored prairie area in our city parks. We occasionally are a voice for green space and clean water at city and county meetings. Also, we sponsors speakers concerning prairie habitat preservation, environmental issues, and birding topics.
