KELP CLASS 12
Introducing KELP Class 12
KELP is proud to announce the 16 new students accepted into the Class of 2012. They submitted applications, reference letters, and described their desire to learn about their roles in the Kansas environment. These students represent a variety of perspectives throughout the state of Kansas, such as the Kansas Farmer’s Union, Midwest Energy, and college students. Visit our website to learn more about these individuals.
Session 1 was held February 7 to 9 in Hays. Students discussed many water topics such as hydraulic fracturing, and groundwater contamination. They learned how as citizens they can have a greater influence on wellhead protection. After getting to know each other over the course of two days, they set off with their first homework assignments and left looking forward to the next four sessions.
Session 2 began March 7th in Topeka, where it continued the KELP class in environmental education. Touring the Capitol building and sitting in on a hearing were just a couple of highlights of the session. Brandi Nelson describes the session in more detail on the website
