11th Annual Conference on Tar Creek--It's NOT Just Tar Creek Anymore

It has been a l-o-n-g time since anyone posted on this blog but I needed to write about the upcoming 11th Annual Conference on Tar Creek. Yes, this is number 11 and as noted in the title of this blog entry, it's not just about Tar Creek anymore. The variety of environmental issues to be addressed at this conference is not just exciting but inspiring.

Attendees will not only hear the latest about environmental issues in our area but will also have the opportunity to tour University of Oklahoma's Passive Treatment System with Dr. Robert Nairn. They will also be introduced to Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) by Drs. James and Susie Aber. KAP is an important method of conducting research and is certainly one of the most fun methods of obtaining data!

For those of you that need food or entertainment to catch your attention, well, the conference offers that as well. Even a movie!
Please do check out the details of the conference at LEAD Agency's conference page. There is a registration form and agenda available for download.

I hope to see you at the conference. I'll be the person asking if I can help with the KAP--one time I can be asked to go fly a kite and be happy to oblige!
