Wind farms away  

Credit:  The Wichita Eagle | May 18 | www.kansas.com ~~

Located in the heart of the Central Flyway for migratory birds, Maxwell Wildlife Refuge in McPherson County is now threatened by possible wind farms.

Home to an almost pristine native prairie, this refuge might soon be ringed by 300-foot wind turbines. Needless to say, the visual impact on this natural and historic site would be detrimental.

This refuge was given to the people of Kansas to be a permanent reminder of the way Kansas was. Thousands of people from around the world come here and are awestruck by the vastness of this little piece of prairie.

Wind energy is important, but these wind farms should, and can be located in less-sensitive areas.

Doug Rudick, Salina
