Celebrating 30 Years

The Nature Conservancy in Kansas

Join us to celebrate 30 years of The Nature Conservancy in Kansas.

It was a generation ago, in 1989, that dedicated volunteers came together from across Kansas to establish a statewide chapter of TNC.

After a welcome from Pittsburg State University president Dr. Steven Scott, The Nature Conservancy’s director Rob Manes will recap the organization’s 30-year history in Kansas and plans for the next 30 years. Dr. Joe Arruda and other PSU biology department faculty will be there to discuss local conservation efforts.

Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to Susan at susan.m.smith@tnc.org or 785-233-4400.
