Green Team

The Green Team is a group of employees and retiree volunteers that take on environmental projects across Kansas and Missouri since 1989.


Completing 50 to 70 projects per year, mostly on weekends and evenings, the Green Team collaborates with conservation groups, agencies and schools in enhancing and fostering an understanding of the Kansas and Missouri environment as well as improving natural habitats and helping provide access to important environmental areas.

Youth hunts

Our Green Team volunteers conduct guided hunts on Evergy-owned conservation property for youths who have never harvested a turkey, dove or deer. Emphasis is on safety and having a good learning experience. The hunts are held in early April for spring turkeys, September for doves, and the December and January rifle seasons for deer. Hunters must apply and be accepted in order to participate. Those with experienced mentors are encouraged to pursue hunting opportunities on their own to leave our limited hunt spaces for novice youths and their adult mentors.
