Fodor's Review

On the outskirts of Atchison, a 15-minute drive from downtown, trees from 50 states and 38 countries were planted in honor of men and women involved in space exploration and aviation, and grow in harmony at the International Forest of Friendship. Overlooking Lake Warnock, the forest was a gift to the United States for its 1976 bicentennial from the city of Atchison, the University of Kansas Forestry Extension, and International Ninety-Nines, Inc. Access the forest through a gate marked "Allingham Drive" and travel down Memory Lane, paved with plaques that list the names of more than 1,200 pilots, astronauts, and manufacturers who have contributed to aviation. The Amelia Earhart Earthworks sculpture can be seen from the walking trail.
