“Pulse of the Plains: A Photographer’s Journey Connecting Water, Wildlife and Landscape”

Michael Forsberg – Tuesday, December 6, 2011 – 7 p.m.

Water permeates nearly every natural history and conservation story in North America’s Great Plains.  Photographer Michael Forsberg reflects on his last 15 years of documenting the natural environment and the ever-changing water resources found at the heart of this continent.  His pursuits have led to projects including Sandhill cranes, the Great Plains ecosystem, and a new timelapse photography project focused on the Platte River Basin.  Through words and images, Forsberg shares with us what he has discovered: why this elegant yet compromised ecosystem and its creatures matter to us here at home and around the world.
