MANHATTAN, Kan. -- The potential listing of the Lesser Prairie Chicken (LPC) as a threatened or endangered species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is on the minds of many landowners in Kansas and a cause of concern for land managers.



The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) and K-State Research and Extension will host a webinar to address landowners’ concerns on April 30, 7 p.m. at 17 Kansas locations.


Speakers from KDWPT, Farm Services Agency and Natural Resources Conservation Agency will provide updated information. Topics to be discussed include background on the LPC listing and the state's planning efforts; goals of the plan; and priority areas.


Detailed information on the conservation value of land and allocation of offset payments to landowners will be provided. Information on the state and federal plans specifically designed to improve habitat for LPC and what a proposed listing means to those enrolled in federal programs will be explained.


Webinars allow those with high speed internet to connect with the host site and view and listen to the speaker’s programs online. Participants will be able to ask questions and make comments. Because of anticipated demand, there will be 17 viewing sites of the webinar. The list of sites follows:
