On January 20 and 21, 2011, six professional societies that promote the wise use and management of Kansas' natural resources are sponsoring the third Kansas Natural Resources Conference at the Airport Hilton in Wichita. The theme of the plenary session is "Through the Haze--The Role of Fire on the Prairie." Early registration continues through January 3, 2011.
"This year's plenary session theme is particularly important," said Jessica Mounts, steering committee chairperson. "The use of fire as a management tool bears both historical and modern significance." Registration information is available on the Internet at the Web site www.kansasnrc.org.
"Interested individuals should find that the conference speakers, concurrent sessions, and tradeshow will provide a variety of information about many natural resource topics, including fire," said Mounts.
"We have also added a job fair for those interested," said Mounts.
More information on the conference and the job fair are available on the website.
