Located between the Flint Hills and Wakarusa Groups, the Topeka Group includes the Kansas Capitol, providing its members a convenient opportunity to lobby in person on behalf of environmental legislation. Equity is of historical significance in the city that hosts the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site. Topeka is also home to the nationally recognized Washburn University Law School, which offers a certificate in Natural Resources Law. The Kansas River (a/k/a the Kaw) provides local recreational opportunities and water quality challenges. This area, like all of Kansas, occupies land that is part of the ancestral lands of the Osage Nation.
