Thursday Evening – Cameron Park Zoo: Join us at the zoo to kick off the conference! We’ll have games, drinks, and time to socialize at this beautiful setting. Registration includes 2 drink tickets. Please eat before coming!

Friday Morning – Terrestrial Habitats of Cameron Park: One of the largest municipal parks in Texas, Cameron Park has provided Wacoans with ready access to natural beauty and recreational activities for over one hundred years. Our Friday morning Breakout Sessions will occur at Lovers Leap, a limestone bluff situated high above the Bosque River. The area includes open spaces, forested trails, an overlook, and some pavilion spaces that can be used by presenters. Sessions focused on terrestrial habitats and those needing open spaces will best be done at this site.

Friday Afternoon & Evening – Mayborn Museum, Baylor University: The Mayborn Museum Complex celebrates the natural science and cultural history of Central Texas. Inside sessions and sessions that require technology will be able to take place at this site. We will end our day with a business dinner and meeting at the museum.

Saturday – Wetland Habitats of the Lake Waco Wetlands: A thriving ecosystem along the shores of the North Bosque River, the 174-acre Lake Waco Wetlands gives visitors a chance to see nature at its finest. From wetland marshes to groves of hardwoods and cedars, the Wetlands’ diverse habitat is home to thousands of organisms. This area includes boardwalks over the wetlands, picnic tables under oak trees, trails, and shady spots. Sessions focused on wetlands and water will best be done at this site.

Sunday Morning – Cameron Park Zoo (tentative): End the conference with a hands-on leadership session by a guest speaker! More info coming soon!
