Oklahoma Natural Resources Conference @ Tulsa, OK

The OKNRC is hosted by the Oklahoma Chapters of The Wildlife Society, American Fisheries Society, Society for Range Management, Oklahoma Invasive Plant Council, Prescribed Fire Council, the Soil and Water Conservation Society, Oklahoma Ornithological Society, and the Oklahoma Division of Society of American Foresters.

One goal of this conference is to increase interaction among the different professional natural resource entities in Oklahoma. Another goal is to increase awareness of what the different natural resource societies, agencies and NGOs are doing across the state, as well as foster future partnerships. An additional benefit of this conference is to bring natural resource professionals from across Oklahoma to one location to share their experience, knowledge, and research, and to allow the opportunity to network with familiar peers and new ones.

For more information or to register, visit the conference website or contact Ken Cunningham by email or phone (405-521-4606).  Additional details will be posted closer to the date of the conference.
