The Iowa Prairie Conference is open to anyone interested in prairies. Natural resource practitioners, educators, students and prairie enthusiasts will gather for education, discussion and networking opportunities. Workshop sessions, field trips and social events are also planned. This year’s conference theme, “Working Prairies,” reflects the evolving role of prairie in today’s landscape. 

Featured plenary speakers are Doug Ladd, Land Stewardship Director of Missouri Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, and Lisa Schulte-Moore, associate professor of natural resource ecology and management at Iowa State University.  Three symposia will be offered: Writing the Tallgrass Prairie chaired by John Price; Iowa Roadsides chaired by Kristine Nemec; and Forty Years of Prairie Preservation and Restoration (commemorating Daryl Smith’s retirement) chaired by Pauline Drobney and Laura Jackson.

Daryl Smith will be recognized and honored for his more than 40 years of work on behalf of Iowa prairies and the Tallgrass Prairie Center in particular.

To submit scholarly papers for consideration or to register for the conference, please go to www.tallgrassprairiecenter.org/2015-prairie-conference .  Information may also be obtained on the event Facebook page by searching “Iowa Prairie Conference 2015.”

Move math concepts off the page and into your children's mind and body when math is integrated with rhythm, movement, storytelling, and the imagination. When integrating music and movement with math, students move past rote memorizing and toward conceptual thinking. Students will learn to create, perform, and describe a deeper understanding of mathematics. Campers will draw pictures, create rhythm and movement patterns, and accurately use the language of mathematics to deepen their comprehension. This camp will be led by special guest director, Marcia Daft, www.marciadaft.com.
