Here's what I have so far..not what I was looking for, which is typical, but
I had to pass it along in case any of you integration-type people are
interested. (I think it sounds amazing - I want to go!) Full registration is
$195 by May 1. Rooms are around $98 per night.
"1999 National Ag in the Classroom Conference" May 19-22, OKC, OK. It
includes a post-conference tour to the OK Southwest -- the Ft Sill museum
(burial place of Geronimo - and also the birthplace of the great sculptor
Alan Houser who was the first Ft. Sill Apache born as a free person - not a
POW), the Wichita Wildlife Refuge (huge bison herd among other things).
Workshops include road trips, "make & takes" and things like "teaching with
Bugs", "how to access public funding", and "ag literacy research" and 20
other topics unlisted. Also, tours of the great Lazy E area and breeding
facilities and a banquet with Gov. Keating at the National Cowboy Hall of
Fame - (which is also an outstanding western / Native American art museum),
and even the OK Cattlemen's Range Roundup which should be a blast. Lunch at
Express ranch (that would be amazing) a visit to the Murrah Bombing
memorial-in-progress - an intense experience and quick way to learn about
the importance of public art representing the spirit of the people- and a
talk by Mark Bays, our forester (down the hall, I mean) who is in charge of
saving the "survivor tree" (the tree in the parking lot across from the
Murrah).
This is through Oklahoma State University. If you want to know more, try
