Tallgrass Prairie Center's Ecological Restoration Seminar: Lessons Learned About Prairie

Bill Johnson, Natural Resource Biologist at the Prairie Resource Center, Iowa DNR, will share “lessons learned” about prairie in his 25-year career with Iowa DNR. The first part of his time was spent reconstructing prairies as a land manager. The last half has been devoted to propagating prairie seed for restoration at Iowa DNR’s Prairie Resource Center at Brushy Creek State Park. Learn more about the people, places, and experiences that have shaped Bill’s prairie education, and how he caught the prairie “bug.” 

Attending an Academic Conference

Attending an academic conference allows you to present your work to faculty and colleagues, build your resume or CV, network and receive field-related experience outside of the classroom. Attend the workshop to learn the benefits of attending conferences, preparation suggestions, tips on networking and resources for more information. 

Film Screening and Discussion: "The Lord is Not on Trial Here Today"

"The Lord is Not On Trial Here Today" is a Peabody Award-winning documentary that tells the compelling personal story of Vashti McCollum and how her efforts to protect her 10-year-old son led to one of the most important and landmark First Amendment cases in U.S. Supreme Court history — the case that established the separation of church and state in public schools. The case is little-known by the contemporary American public, yet the McCollum decision continues to have important ramifications for current conflicts over the role of religion in public institutions – from displays of the Ten Commandments in government buildings to student-led prayers at public school graduation ceremonies. A short discussion follows the film; open to the public.
