Flint Hills District


We've worked hard at trying to keep our website updated and informative.  We welcome all feedback.  Please feel free to let us know how we're doing. 

K-State Research and Extension 
Flint Hills District

The Flint Hills Extension District is a branch of K-State Research and Extension.  Extension programs present educational information related to agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer sciences, 4-H youth development, and community development.

We serve the people of Morris and Chase Counties, and we have offices located in Council Grove and Cottonwood Falls.

Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, and play.  We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education, and problem-solving programs for real concern.  The information we provide is researched based and unbiased.
