Join us in celebrating a decade of the Nebraska Natural Legacy Project at Natural Legacy Conference 2015! Come learn what is new with mountain lions, river otters, owls, grassland birds, amphibians, pollinators, native oak tree regeneration, and more! The Natural Legacy Project invites natural resource professionals, conservationists, Natural Resource and Biological Science students, and land managers and owners to gather in central Nebraska to learn about important actions taking place in the state for wildlife habitat and at-risk species. This year’s gathering will happen at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Kearney, NE In addition to informative talks and the opportunity to collaborate with researchers and colleagues, there will be guided tours of Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary and the scenic Rainwater Basin Wetlands. Lunch, coffee, pastries, and snacks will be provided each day of the Conference. Your FREE registration also includes dinner on the night of September 29. Register today!
