SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Flint Hills National Wildlife Refuge 
straddles the Neosho River in eastern Kansas. The area is dominated by 
complex resource management issues revolving around the flood control 
function of John Redmond Reservoir. Activities associated with 
agriculture, flood control, and public recreation have placed 
increasing demands on the landscape and identified the need for more 
responsible utilization of land and water resources that support the 
remaining native ecosystem components.
    Flint Hills National Wildlife Refuge will continue to conserve 
habitat for the diverse array of native plants and animals that rely 
upon the resources of the Refuge for survival. This Plan describes the 
conservation activities that the Fish and Wildlife Service intends to 
carry our on Flint Hills NWR.
