Nominate a Conservation Champion!

The Kansas Conservation Champion Award committee is seeking nominations for the 2022 KNRC Conservation Champion. Members of the conservation community here in Kansas work hard to improve, conserve, protect, and enhance our great State’s natural resources. We all promote the appreciation of the outdoors and the resources found there and educate the public about them. Within our community there are those who stand out, who go above and beyond, who exemplify the mission and goals of the KNRC member organizations, and who are champions of the natural resources in Kansas. This is your opportunity to recognize those individuals within your organization who fit this definition.


The committee wants to stress that there is no career length requirement for someone to be a champion of conservation. We have individuals in our organizations who are deserving nominees with 5 years in the field and those with 55 years in the field. All are eligible.


The nomination form and required supporting documents are contained in the link above. The nomination period is open till November 19th.

Our plenary theme this year is:

Changing Conservation Communications: 
Shifting Values, Techniques, and Priorities

  • Only poster presentations will be accepted, but posters on any relevant natural resource and conservation topics are welcome. 
  • Posters will be available a minimum of 10 days prior to the conference for viewing by all registered attendees.
  • Breakout sessions will group posters of similar subject matter together for a live, virtual, moderated discussion via Zoom (click agenda for a tentative schedule, and check back often.)  

Limited space is available for posters, so submit your abstracts early!  

The agenda/timeline for each virtual breakout session will be:

  • 2 min: Moderator introduces session & poster presenters
  • +/-20 min: Each presenter gives a 4-5-min "elevator speech" of their poster in a pre-determined order
  • Moderated Q&A / discussion of all posters in that session to follow. 
  • Questions for the session will be typed into the "chat" function using zoom, and the moderator will read the questions for the presenters to answer. 
  • Closed Captioning will be available.
