• The Missouri Department of Conservation is pleased to host the 80th Annual Association for Conservation Information Conference in Springfield, Missouri on July 29–Aug. 2, 2018. We want to build on the excellent storytelling theme in Indiana last year, and focus on “Connecting the Dots” with an integrated communications approach for ACI 2018. The conference will be held at the University Plaza Hotel in downtown Springfield, which is in close walking distance to local restaurants, retail shops, and the Springfield Cardinals stadium. Conference plans are underway for world-class speakers, engaging topics, educational sponsors, and a chance to see some of Springfield’s best attractions, including the new Wonders of Wildlife Museum at Bass Pro Shops. Come join us this year and experience the best of Missouri! ACI conference registration deadline is Monday, July 9. The registration fee goes up to $375 after July 9.
  • All attendees are invited to join us for an afternoon tour of the new Johnny Morris National Wonders of Wildlife Museum & Aquarium. Experience the largest, most immersive fish and wildlife attraction in the world, located in Springfield, Mo., at the headquarters and home of Bass Pro Shops. Wonders of Wildlife celebrates people who hunt, fish, and act as stewards of the land and water. This national wildlife and aquarium attraction opened in September 2017.
    Dinner is on your own on Tuesday evening of the conference. However, if you would be interested in watching a Springfield Cardinals ballgame and eating a delicious dinner buffet at the stadium, which is in close walking distance from the hotel, we have arranged a fun evening for you. Ticket and buffet dinner cost will be approximately $30 (not covered or included in your conference registration) to be paid by each person at the stadium gate on Tuesday evening. Please mark if you are interested in attending, so we can get an estimated number on attendance for the ballgame.
