The Frank Museum in Kearney will host a conversation on renewable energy on Thursday with three community leaders in Nebraska.

Partnering with the Audubon Center’s Rowe Sanctuary, the museum talk, titled “Frank Conversations,” will feature Frank Museum director Will Stoutamire, Kearney mayor Stan Clouse and Lu Nelson from the Center for Rural Affairs. The topics of focus will be Kearney’s hydroelectric plant and solar array, as well as the current state of wind energy In Nebraska.

Beka Yates, who is the education manager with Rowe Sanctuary, said the talk will offer a good opportunity to learn about how renewable resources are already affecting Nebraska.

“We look at what different conservation messages we would like to get out to the public more," Yates said. "Lots of people are always interested in hearing about renewable energy; it’s a conversation that pops up a lot. We just wanted to engage people in that conversation.”

The talk starts at 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Frank Museum of Kearney and is free and open to the public.
