Since this installment of our lunch & learn series is taking place late in the afternoon, we will not be providing lunch for participants; instead we will have an assortment of finger foods for guests to enjoy. Consequently no RSVP is required for this event.

Dr. Jackson will also be presenting a public lecture, entitled “The Prairie as a Measure for a Sustainable Agriculture,” later in the evening. For more information about the evening lecture, as well as a biography of the speaker, please click here:
