Since 1995 the Center for Grassland Studies has offered a seminar series during the first semester of the school year.
The CGS Fall Seminar Series features guest lecturers from on and off campus who speak on topics related to the Center's mission such as
- future challenges in the turf industry,
- reclaiming rangeland using prescribed burns,
- the impact of different grazing systems on grassland wildlife populations.
Each series features a Frank and Margaret Leu Distinguished Lecturer; this is generally a person who is nationally recognized for his/her expertise in some aspect of grassland management.
The seminars may be taken for academic credit and are also free and open to the public.
They are held most Mondays late August through early December from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Nebraska East Union on the UNL East Campus.
Information about the Upcoming Seminar Series is posted as it becomes available.
