Community Lecture Series Explores Water

Lectures by six UM faculty members will address various aspects of water during this year’s Community Lecture Series, “Western Rivers: Connecting Landscapes and Livelihoods.” The six-week lecture series, now in its 16th year, begins Tuesday, Feb. 18.

This year’s speakers hail from wide-ranging fields, including creative writing, law, aquatic biology and environmental studies, and their lectures will take many different approaches to the fascinating topic of water. Attendees will delve into “the riverscape legacy” in transcendentalist poetry, the place of water in the Blackfeet universe, the wonders of applied hydrogeology and the historic roots of water law.
