Kansas Biological Survey to host fifth public forum on Douglas County natural areas and historic sites

Monday, February 18, 2019

On Feb. 23, the Kansas Biological Survey will host the fifth in a series of free public forums to learn about Douglas County residents’ priorities for conservation and open spaces. The event will take place at Marion Springs Event Center in Worden, in southwestern Douglas County. Forums already been held in Lawrence, Baldwin City, Eudora and Lecompton. Each forum is focused on the interests of residents in the local area.

The forums are part of a project funded by the Douglas County Heritage Conservation Council. The upcoming forum will begin with two short presentations, with Biological Survey ecologists providing an overview of the area’s natural places, and a local resident sharing the experiences of her family members, who homesteaded in the area. The remainder of time will be devoted to participant discussion. Natural resource professionals will be on hand to answer landowners’ questions.

Contact Jennifer Delisle of the Kansas Biological Survey at jdelisle@ku.edu for more information.
