PRAIRIE CHICKEN PLAN...
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to render its final decision on whether to list the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species next spring. In advance of that, the service has agreed to evaluate a new conservation plan for this bird, developed for the five states where it resides, including Kansas. However, as K-State wildlife specialist Charlie Lee explains this week, this action does not preclude the service from eventually listing the lesser prairie chicken.
