SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A daylong sustainability conference gets under way in Sioux Falls on Friday.
The Plain Green Conference was started in 2008 by South Dakota State University and Koch Hazard Architects to raise awareness about the issue of sustainability.
Organizers of this year's conference say they expect nearly 300 people to attend the event focusing on design, energy and lifestyles.
The event at Sioux Falls' Orpheum Theater is open to the public. Registration is $130.
