Meeting of the Kansas (Central States) Entomological Society

The Kansas Entomological Society is pleased to announce that it will once again team up with the Kansas Academy of Sciences to host the Joint Meeting of the Kansas Academy of Science and Kansas Entomological Society at McPherson College April 14-15, 2023.

This meeting will bring together scientists of all levels and backgrounds from around the state to share research on a variety of topics. There will be both oral and poster presentations on Saturday organized into specific topics and symposia, including a special entomology symposium. This is a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research with awards for the top presentations at multiple levels. In addition to the scientific talks on Saturday, we have several fun events scheduled for this meeting. There will be 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.
