KSNH Spring Conference April 24-26,2015
Natural Bridge State Resort Park




Pat Meyer is putting the KSNH State Treasurer position open as Berl is going to be president starting this fall. We need someone to step forward and be an active part of this organization. Pat will more than gladly assist/orientate this person to this position. With lots of our members having previously served as officers, we really would like to see some new faces step forward.


Berl, would like to send out a thanks to all you fine naturalists that came to the Indiana Caverns tour last Saturday. It was a beautiful day just right for being underground for awhile. We did get a heartfelt thanks from the management from the cavern and the hope that we would make a return trip in the near future. Now we turn our eyes to the upcoming spring conference that is going to be held at Natural Bridge State Resort Park. There are very rooms left at the state park, you might to make a quick call if you haven't done so already. Our conferences there have always been well attended. lf you haven't sent Pat, our treasurer, the registration form, please send it now or in the next couple of days. I'm in the process of making up our name tags now and I want you to make sure that you don't miss out one of these fine art pieces. Visit for an agenda and registration form. If you have any questions, just send them as a reply to this email address and hope to see some of you on the auto tour of the gorge that I'm leading. We'll stop by a couple of natural arches there in the gorge and see many other geological formations and even a wildflower or two. Take Care and have a fine day in the 70's tomorrow. -----------
