Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild

Photographer Michael Forsberg's newest book: Great Plains  - America's Lingering Wild is an extension of several years of dedicated work trying to put a face to the native wildife, landscapes and conservation challenges in the heart of the North American continent. In this photo driven presentation, Mike will offer a look into what it took to pull the book together, share some stories from the field, and what he learned along the way. Ends with a multi-media piece taking the audience on a journey through the lingering wild of the Great Plains.
