The Prairie Fire Bioneers Conference serves as an incubator for environmental and social change and brings people together who are passionate about restoring the earth's imperiled ecosystems.
For several years, Knox students and faculty attended Beaming Bioneers gatherings, which bring the National Bioneers Conference experience to locations across the country and around the world. Then, in 2011, we hosted our very first Bioneers satellite conference, one of 18 across the country!
Join us again this year for our third annual Prairie Fire Bioneers Conference, a positive forum that coincides with the national conference in California.
