Presentation by John Head, Distinguished Professor of Law Drawing on his soon-to-be-released book titled International Legal Regimes to Protect the World’s Grasslands, John Head will offer observations on the sorry state of the world’s grasslands and prairies – such as those that until recently covered much of Kansas and other Great Plains states – and draw attention to the embarrassing lack of protection they are receiving even in economically-developed and environment-conscious countries.

It is a series of presentations by faculty, students and community members to educate and facilitate dialogue on ideas and events that shape our society. An optional lunch is served. Presentation: noon to 1pm. Optional Lunch served at 11:30 am ($6.50 adults, $3.50 students))
