  3. Lunch & Learn: "Chemical Lands: A History of Pesticides, Aerial Spraying, and Health in North America's Grasslands Since 1945" with author David Vail

    June 28, 2018, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    In this newly released book, David Vail shows a distinctly regional view of agricultural health evolved after World War II. Vail’s analysis reveals a particularly strong ethic in the North American grasslands. This study provides a unique grasslands perspective of the ag pilots, weed scientists and farmers who struggled to navigate novel technologies for spray planes and in the development of new herbicides/insecticides while striving to manage and mitigate threats to human health and the environment. David D. Vail is an assistant professor of environmental and agricultural history at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. He holds a BA from Southern Oregon University, an MA from Utah State University, and a PhD from Kansas State University. The book can be purchased in the gift shop, and the author will be available to sign copies. This program is free and open to the public thanks to Friends of the Eisenhower Foundation. A light lunch is provided on a first-come, first served basis.
