James Sherow, professor of history, will give a public lecture at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, in 231 Ackert Hall. 

Based on his latest book, Sherow will present a view of the Chisholm Trail and rise of the American beef industry using an ecological approach to discuss the agrarian and urban-industrial America of the 19th century.

This talk is being presented for students participating in the capstone course of the natural resources and environmental science secondary major and is open to the general public as part of the NRES Seminar Series. Undergraduate students interested in natural resources, environmental science and sustainability issues are especially encouraged to attend.

The natural resources and environmental science secondary major and its seminar series are generously supported by the Office of the Provost, College of Agriculture, College of Arts and Sciences, and biological and agricultural engineering department.
