The theme for this year’s AMI workshop is “Rivers connect us to life-sustaining resources through time.” We will be exploring how our cultural and natural heritage has shaped the state, with a spotlight on the deep Missouri Ozarks and the stories we tell to interpret our resources. Pre-conference activities start August 20 in Van Buren, Mo. The workshop is Aug. 21-23, so mark your calendars.
Of course we can’t have a workshop without you! We need presenters for sessions and as field trip leaders (either preconference or on Wednesday, Aug. 22). We are especially looking for presentations on the Civil War in south central Missouri, Ozark grist mills, and storytelling.
