  • Leavenworth Outdoor Clubs Partner with State Dpt to Improve local lakes in Kansas

    Leavenworth Elites Bass Club, The Leavenworth Bass Club, Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club partner with Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and the Friends of Reservoirs to improve fish habitat in local Kansas lakes.

    The Leavenworth Elites bass club working through the Kansas Bass Nation applied for and received a financial grant for $1000 from the Friends of Reservoirs for a fish habitat improvement project at Banner Creek Reservoir near Holton, KS. Partnering with The Leavenworth Bass Club, a Missouri Bass Nation affiliated club, the clubs coordinated with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Banner Creek to plan an artificial habitat emplacement project for the spring of 2018. Simultaneously, the Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club began a Christmas tree collection project in the winter of 2017 for habitat improvement in Smith and Merritt Lakes on Fort Leavenworth, KS. Several of the club members belong to all three organizations so collaborative planning began in the fall of 2017 with Eric Verburg, the conservation chairman for The Leavenworth Bass Club, leading the Banner Creek project and Larry Stoafer, the fishing coordinator for the Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club leading the Merritt and Smith Lake Projects.
