    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Doug Spieles presenting "The Land Trust Movement in America and Licking County.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Doug Spieles, associate professor of environmental studies, presenting "The Land Trust Movement in America and Licking County.” Most of us are familiar with the fabulous collection of protected public lands in the United States; hopefully you've had a chance to visit a national park, bird sanctuary, wilderness area or wildlife reserve. Less well known is the explosive movement to protect private lands in this country. Privately held land under conservation or agricultural protection now encompasses about 50 million acres in the U.S.--nearly the same area as our national parks. Protection of these private lands is overseen by 1,700 local, state, and national Land Trusts. In this presentation I'll explore the role of Land Trusts in terms of land use planning, community building and ecological conservation. In particular, I'll explain the work of our very own Licking Land Trust. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.
    Address: Burton D. Morgan Center, Denison University, 150 Ridge Road, Granville, OH 43023

He has since published numerous articles and book chapters on olfactory phenomena in literature and cultural studies. Rindisbacher speaks as eloquently as he writes, both in German and in English. Free and open to the public.

    4:30 PM
    The Geosciences Seminar welcomes Darren Gravely presenting "What is a caldera volcano? New insights from the Central Taupo Volcanic Zone."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Geosciences Seminar welcomes Darren Gravely from the University of Canterbury (New Zealand), presenting "What is a caldera volcano? New insights from the Central Taupo Volcanic Zone." Calderas, their associated structures, and the geometry of their pre-collapse magma reservoir(s) have been the subject of much scientific intrigue, largely because they represent the largest scale of volcanic eruptions and our knowledge has only been gleaned from ancient examples. Free and open to the public.
