Service Animal Policy

We welcome all trained service animals at the Flint Hills Discovery Center and use the following guidelines.

Trained service animals, as defined under applicable federal and state laws, are permitted. A service animal is a dog or miniature horse that is trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with disabilities.

Companion animals, therapy animals and comfort animals are not considered service animals.

The following questions will be asked of each guest who enters the facility with a service animal.
  • Is the service animal required because of a disability?
  • What work or task has the animal been trained to perform?
If the animal is out of control or if the animal is not housebroken, the handler will be asked to remove the animal from the premises.

These guidelines also apply to all Flint Hills Discovery Center events such as Flint Hills Festival, National Day of the Cowboy, Community Day, private events such as weddings and receptions, and others that utilize the facility, grounds, and the adjoining Blue Earth Plaza.
