Can you experience nature on Massachusetts Street on a Friday night?

Ken Lassman, author of Wild Douglas County, will show you how to find nature in the heart of downtown Lawrence. Through his presentation, Lassman will train your senses and teach you what to look and listen for to experience nature in unlikely places.

Join us for conversation, community, and a lesson in sensory awakening.

Humanities in the Wild is a new series of events, coinciding with Final Fridays, designed to showcase the connections between humanities research and the great outdoors. From the politics of climate change to the history of conservation, from the culture of recreation to narratives of adventure, Humanities in the Wild presents ways in which the humanities provide unique insights into our relationship with nature.
