The Annual Meeting of the OKI Regional Conservation Council gives you a chance to increase your knowledge of conservation matters and get better acquainted with other people who care about our region’s natural resources. Time is allowed for networking and camaraderie. After everyone there introduces themselves to the rest of the audience, the meeting launches into an educational program on compelling conservation topics of the day. Meeting brochures with presentation slides provide printed materials to take home with you. Attendance has grown to nearly 100 people lately and simultaneous break-out sessions first appeared on the program agenda in 2016.
Normally, the Annual Meeting occurs in late March or early April. Annual Meeting venues have included the Cincinnati Nature Center in Clermont County, the Campbell County Cooperative Extension Office in Highland Heights, the OKI Regional Council of Governments board room in Cincinnati, Sharon Centre at Sharon Woods in Hamilton County, and Fernald Preserve Visitors Center in Hamilton County. The yearly reunion with other partners in conservation is a subtle Annual Meeting reward.
This year’s program features presentations on:
Developing Urban Forestry Plans with Stormwater in Mind
Maintaining Rain Gardens for Success
Army Corps Management of Dams for Flood Control
Green Umbrella’s Food Atlas of Cincinnati
Williamsburg Dam Removal Project
