Westar Energy’s Green Team will host youth dove hunts again this year at Jeffrey Energy Center in St. Marys.

The hunts will take place Sept. 1-4 in the early morning or late afternoons.

Nontoxic shells will be provided for the hunters.

Hunters will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and hunts will be scheduled as requests dictate, according to a release from Westar.
