Loess Hills Prairie Seminar 2014

Please join us at the 38th annual Loess Hills Prairie Seminar at the Loess Hills Wildlife Management area, May 30-June 1. Intended to foster the recognition, appreciation, and educational use of the natural wonders within eyesight of our communities, the seminar brings together young and old to explore the beauties of the western Iowa landscape.

One of this year’s speakers is John T. Price, a prize-winning writer and professor at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. Although it won’t be released to the general public until June, his latest book, The Tallgrass Prairie Reader (Iowa 2014), will be available for sale at the seminar.

The Tallgrass Prairie Reader is a first-of-its-kind collection of literature from and about this bioregion. It focuses on autobiographical nonfiction in a wide variety of forms, voices, and approaches.

“Finally, here is a lovingly gathered bouquet of prairie wildflowers. This collection does not stop at commemorating all that we’ve lost, but revives the wildness in our imaginations—the first step toward restorative action.”—Julene Bair, author, The Ogallala Road
