As part of the planning process for Flint Hills National Wildlife Refuge’s future, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service invites the public to attend an open house on Thursday, November 5, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. to learn more and share comments and concerns about a draft comprehensive conservation plan developed by the refuge. The open house will be held at the refuge, 530 W. Maple, Hartford, Kan.

The purpose of the plan is to decide how, for the next 15 years, the refuge can best be managed to conserve wildlife and provide enjoyment for people.
