On behalf of the Knox College community, interested NIU students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend the 2nd Annual Prairie Fire Bioneers Conference, which will be held this month at Knox. The weekend (Oct. 26-28th) will be filled with many excellent and educational activities. Perhaps most exciting is our keynote speaker this year: the acclaimed activist Julia Butterfly Hill. In addition, there will be plenary talks by the likes of Bill McKibben, Sandra Steingraber, Paul Hawken and others (which were delivered at the National Bioneers Conference) and more than ten interactive break-out sessions focusing on a wide range of environmental topics. For those who wish to camp, there will be the opportunity to do so at one of the nicest prairie restoration sites in the country, tents provided.
Intrigued? All you need to do is sign up, show up, and pay a reasonable registration fee (which covers the cost of the four meals and snacks that will be served throughout the conference, all prepared fresh by our favorite local vendors.)
