Great Plains - America's Lingering Wild - photographs by Michael Forsberg

World-renowned nature photographer Michael Forsberg will give a presentation on his photography that showcases the beauty of the Great Plains at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4, at Kansas State University’s Alumni Center.

Forsberg is a Nebraska native an his goal has been to try to capture the wild spirit that still survives in these wide-open spaces and put a face to the often overlooked native creatures and landscapes found there. He will be sharing his experiences and knowledge during an exclusive screening of hundreds of his photos, many which capture the beauty of the Flint Hills. 

Forsberg provided the iconic photos for the book "Great Plains – America’s Lingering Wild."  This book came together after traveling 100,000 miles over three years, crisscrossing the Plains from Canada to Mexico. It explores the wildlife, habitats and conservation challenges in the heart of the continent.

Tickets are $20 per person or $10 for students and are available online. All proceeds benefit the Konza Environmental Education Program. For additional questions contact Jill Haukos at 587-0381 or konzaed@k-state.edu.
