A Pocket Guide to Kansas
Threatened & Endangered Species

The information you will find within the Kansas Wildlife Refuge is adapted from the
"Pocket Guide to Kansas
Threatened and Endangered Species"
.

This informative booklet was underwritten by the Kansas Chickadee Checkoff Program, the Westar Energy Green Team, the Kansas chapter of the Nature Conservancy and published by the Friends of the Great Plains Nature Center.

The co-authors were Ed Miller, the Endangered Species Program Coordinator for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism and Bob Gress, the Director of the Great Plains Nature Center.

The purpose of the Pocket Guide and the Kansas Wildlife Refuge is to promote greater understanding and awareness of these unique animals and plants and their importance to the Kansas environment.

The Second Edition of the Pocket Guide to Kansas Threatened and Endangered Species is available as a pdf download.  The species accounts within the Kansas Wildlife Refuge will be updated with the new information as time permits.

Chickadee Checkoff logoThe Chickadee Checkoff is a voluntary donation program for nongame projects in Kansas. Taxpayers are able to contribute by assigning any amount they wish on the appropriate line on their individual income tax form. Since 1980, the Chickadee Checkoff has distributed over four million dollars to projects that help endangered species, assist in reintroduction efforts of sensitive species, support the popular Outdoor Wildlife Learning Sites program at schools, and hundreds of other nongame conservation projects.

Westar logo- Westar Energy, Inc. is the largest utility in Kansas serving nearly 700,000 customers with about 35,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines. Since 1989, their employees have operated an environmental team. The Green Team members volunteer hours to improve wildlife habitat through wetland creation and restoration and native grass and tree planting. They build bridges and trails and work to protect and reintroduce sensitive plant and animal species. The Green Team can be contacted at 785-575-8125 or at Ben.Postlethwait@Westarenergy.com
