Conservation Conversation

Let’s Talk About It!

The Conservation Conversation is a meeting of members of the general public, representatives of a variety of organizations and agencies, and the faculty, students and staff of Purdue University Fort Wayne. We seek to educate and inform, and facilitate dialogue among local and regional organizations and other stakeholders about the opportunities and challenges for conservation efforts in our growing community. By coming together to share research, experience, and perspectives, participants foster collaboration with partners to promote the best outcomes for the quality of life in our region. We hope you’ll join us!

3rd Annual Conversation turned virtual!

After having to postpone our spring 2020 Conversation, we are excited to share that the third Conservation Conversation will go on! It will be held as a series of virtual interviews and panels, shared monthly on the ERC website and social media. Each segment will focus on a particular topic and will highlight questions submitted by the community. Most recent videos will be featured above, while the entire archive of videos can be found on our Kaltura playlist.

Past Events:

1st Annual Meeting: April 15, 2018

In the opening year, the Conversation was held in the (then) Indiana – Purdue Fort Wayne Alumni Center. The event featured 18 speakers representing the City of Fort Wayne, the Department of Natural Resources, not for profits like ACRES Land Trust, and a variety of faculty from Purdue Fort Wayne that are affiliated with the ERC.

We had over 100 people in attendance – presenting, displaying, and generally joining in the conversation. It was a wonderful success! However, it became clear that we could grow, and would need a bigger venue. But those are good problems to have.

2nd Annual Meeting: April 6, 2019

In 2019, we kicked off with a welcome from Mayor Tom Henry. Throughout the day, more than 25 presentations were given on subjects including climate change, local sustainability efforts, river water quality, and wildlife research. Numerous displays featuring area conservation organizations, hands-on activities, and a rain barrel demonstration encouraged participants to talk with people from various perspectives in conservation.

The afternoon closed with an environmentally centered silent auction, and we finished the day with a reception and a dinner featuring sculptor Sayaka Ganz, who shared the inspirations for her stunning sculptures, spectacular representations of nature using repurposed metal and plastic items.
