An adult green bullfrog was found at the site of an undeveloped state park near the former Menninger Clinic in Topeka.
Rob Ladner of the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks describes an undeveloped state park near the former Menninger Clinic in Topeka. State officials are seeking legislative approval of the park's name, but a provision aimed at improving child support payments is complicating the process.
The existing land runs along the side of the Kansas River.
Ladner shows a ringneck snake found along the trails near the banks of the Kansas River. Kansas' 24 state parks don't stack up well against neighboring states. Missouri has 54 state parks; Oklahoma, 58; Colorado, 41.
