Event details

  • Sunday | October 18, 2020
  • 2:00 PM

Eric Freyfogle [a lay leader at UniPlace] is a long-time faculty member and Swanlund Chair holder at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His teaching and writing have explored the social and ecological links between people and nature and traced the root causes of our environmental ills in modern culture and its institutions. His many books–including Our Oldest Task: Making Sense of Our Place in Nature (2017) and Agrarianism and the Good Society: Land, Culture, Conflict, and Hope (2007)–emphasize community and the common good, feature calls for heightened public morality, and propose reforms to private property and land-use policies. [Long active in Champaign-based Prairie Rivers Network, he serves on the Board of the National Wildlife Federation.]

You are welcome to join us in the sanctuary for this event. It will also be videoed for later viewing.
