The sixth annual gathering of Kansas natural resources professionals takes place next month in Wichita.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says the Kansas Natural Resource Conference is set for Jan. 24-25.
This year's conference will focus partly on invasive species such as the emerald ash borer, which has been destroying trees in Kansas and several other states.
Other session topics will include aquatics, forestry, pasture and wetlands.
The Kansas Chapter of the American Fisheries Society, Society of American Foresters, Kansas Alliance for Wetlands and Streams are among the conference sponsors.
