South end of Barker Ave. Trail, Haskell Indian Nations University, Lawrence KS 66046

Upon the destruction by KDOT of an 800 foot wide swath of the Wakarusa Wetlands to build the South Lawrence Trafficway (SLT), which includes SLT pavement of about 100 feet wide and the new 31st St. pavement of about 50 feet wide, the 35 feet wide pavement from the old 31st St. was removed and returned to wetland ecology.  This is the main area that is now being re-seeded and planted as part of the Haskell Wetlands.  This workday is being organized by Haskell Indian Nations University students to help restore the Haskell Wetlands.

To get to the site, approach from the north through the campus.  From Massachusetts and 23rd St. head south until the street reaches a dog-leg to the left (east).  Go a short distance east to Barker Ave. and turn right (south).  The pavement will soon end, but continue south on the trail for about 1/3 mile to the site.
