The State Board met on January 16 and renewed contracts and adopted a budget for 2016. The board voted to pursue additional funding in order to expand the Bring Back the Monarch program, and also approved a theme of “Conservation and Climate Change” for the Fall Symposium to be held at an undetermined site in the North Texas area the weekend of October 15.
