Conference Venue

Camp Fire This year's conference will be held at the Touch of Nature Environmental Center in Carbondale, IL. An extension of Southern Illinois University, Touch of Nature sits on over 3,100 acres of forested hills, and the conference center is adjacent Little Grassy Lake. The environment is ideal for canoeing, hiking, and camping.

Things to Bring

Because of the rustic environment, conference participants, particularly those staying in the cabins, should carefully consider what they pack. To assist attendees with packing, participants who are staying in cabins will be notified via email in the weeks before the conference.
