TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism (KDWPT) and Kanza Rails to Trails Conservancy (KRTC) have scheduled two more design workshops for the public to share their thoughts on the development of the Flint Hills Nature Trail.

The Flint Hills Nature Trail is a rails-to-trails project that extends 117 miles from Osawatomie to Herington. Development of the Trail will encourage outdoor recreation and provide safer routes for pedestrians, bicyclists, and equestrians. The trail will connect six counties and numerous communities along the way.

The design team of CFS Engineers and RDG Planning and Design is leading the planning and design of the trail.

A significant element of the project is learning and understanding public opinions about development of the trail using a series of community workshops. These are open sessions. No formal presentation is planned, and interested residents are invited to attend at their convenience. The workshop format allows visitors to learn about trail planning and design and to talk one-on-one with design team members.

Workshops will be held:
Monday, March 10th:
4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
