June 17 at the Flint Hills Regional Council Board of Directors meeting Emily Connell, Program Director, and Annie Wilson, Program Coordinator, presented on the Flint Hills Map and Education Program. The program plans to provide and display a fully illustrated map of the Flint Hills region with age-appropriate interpretive panels in every school in the Flint Hills. This will be supported by an extensive, dynamic educational and informational website for students, teachers, researchers, and the public.
The mission of the program is to deepen students' knowledge, pride, and commitment to their special place in the world - the Flint Hills; to give teachers motivational tools to connect learning to students' own lives, communities, and local environment; and to provide a web-based center of learning about the Flint hills for all.
