Annual Meeting

155th Annual Meeting of the Kansas Academy of Science

McPherson College

April 14-15, 2023


I would like to personally invite you to the upcoming Joint Meeting of the Kansas Academy of Science & Kansas Entomological Society. The meeting will be held on McPherson College campus on April 14-15. This meeting will bring scientists of all levels from around the state to share discoveries from a variety of fields. We will have both oral and poster presentations on Saturday organized into specific topics and symposia. This meeting is particularly welcoming to both graduate and undergraduate students and has awards for the top presentations at multiple levels. Given McPherson College is an undergraduate institution, it is my hope to have a great number of undergraduates attending and presenting their work at the meeting. In addition to the scientific talks on Saturday, we have several fun events scheduled for this meeting, including a field trip on Friday to the Land Institute, and a tour of the McPherson Museum. We also have two outstanding keynote speakers lined up. On Friday evening, Dr. Greg McDonald from the Bureau of Land Management will give a public talk on fossils. On Saturday afternoon, Dr. Lee DeHaan from the Land Institute will talk about their work on sustainable agriculture systems. Registration for this meeting is currently open. If presenting, abstracts are required. Abstracts will be limited to 250 words. Please download the form below and email it Dr. Dustin Wilgers ( before the March 24 deadline. I hope to see you in April.
