K-State has announced that you can join the Flint Hills Discovery Center and K-State Parks Management and Conservation Program for free guided hikes of the Konza Prairie Nature Trail.

All ages are welcome!

Hikes leave every 15 minutes from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and are led by a K-State undergraduate student. Please wear good walking shoes and appropriate clothing for the weather. Consider bringing a water bottle, hat, and sunscreen as necessary. Each tour is filled first-come, first-served and is capped at a maximum of 15 participants.
