Homes on the Range: Conservation in Working Prairie Landscapes
is the theme of the 8th Prairie Conservation and Endangered Species Conference and Workshop. This event is held only every third year, and the location roams around the prairies, so this is the first time since 1989 that it has been held in Regina. The theme sounds great - I've been suggesting something along those lines for our Native Plant Society of Saskatchewan workshop for years - and it's only two hours' drive away, but hang it all, now that it's here, I just don't want to go. I get sort of drawn in looking at the program, but at the same time part of me starts gagging on all the big stuffy words. Oh, I understand them all right, but I can feel that stale conference air already, and smell the exhaust in the parking lot, and I just can't shake the feeling that I've got enough in my head already, and better things to do.
Or not do.
