Session 4 began July 12 and continued through July 13 in Hutchinson. The class took part in a case study, tour of the RO plant, and an extensive tour of the Cheney Lake watershed; directed by Lisa French and Howard Miller, of the watershed. Along the way they stopped at Sig Collins’, who is a producer in the area, for dinner. A number of former KELPers joined the festivities for the evening as well.
The next day, the class enjoyed workshops presented by Kris Boone, Department head of the Kansas State University Agriculture Communications and Agriculture Education Department.
The last session of the year will be held in Manhattan during the Water and the Future of Kansas Conference on October 30 and 31, where students will be recognized for their participation and hard work throughout their year with KELP.
