Abstract: 

This 21st annual Kansas Field Conference offers decision-makers who influence policy on Kansas natural resources the opportunity to learn more about how some of those resources are used and conserved in east-central Kansas, from suburban Kansas City south to the Marais des Cygnes wildlife areas and west to John Redmond Reservoir. The Kansas Geological Survey (KGS) and this year’s other sponsors— the Kansas Water Office, Kansas Department of Transportation, and Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism—have arranged a variety of stops where experts from private companies, agencies, and organizations will provide background on topics ranging from cutting-edge transportation and shipping systems to power plant environmental upgrades to stream-bank erosion, wetland management, and reservoir restoration. There will be plenty of opportunities for discussions and questions.
