2015 Iowa Prairie Conference

It doesn't get any better than this! Talk, think and visit Iowa prairies with old acquaintances and new friends at this summer's Iowa Prairie Conference, July 16-18.

Hosted by the Tallgrass Prairie Center on the UNI campus, the conference will include a variety of symposia, field trips and social events.

Daryl SmithFeatured plenary speakers are Doug Ladd, Land Stewardship Director of The Nature Conservancy's Missouri Chapter, and Lisa Schulte-Moore, Associate Professor of Natural Resource Ecology and Management at Iowa State. Field trip options will include: Cedar Bend Savanna and Cedar Hills Sand Prairie; the TPC's Prairie Power Project research sites at the Cedar River Natural Resource Area; and Rowley Fen and Quigley-Slattery Heritage Prairie.

A highlight at this year's conference will be the symposium 40+ Years of Prairie Preservation and Restoration. Organized to commemorate Daryl Smith's decades of prairie work, the symposium will include presentations about the many different aspects of prairie in which Daryl has been involved. Colleagues and former students will discuss prairie preservation, restoration, reconstruction and management programs and projects ... and will also share a few anecdotes about our good friend and prairie advocate, Daryl Smith.
