Award-winning nature photographer and former NEBRASKAland magazine writer Michael Forsberg will speak at Concordia University, Nebraska, on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. in the Weller Hall Auditorium. His presentation, titled Pulse of the Plains, is open to the public.
A Nebraska native, Forsberg has spent his career photographing and writing about the wildlife and landscape of the Great Plains region. He says he hopes his images can build appreciation and inspire conservation efforts for the ecosystems in the area.
Forsberg earned a degree in geography and environmental studies from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln before beginning work for NEBRASKAland magazine. He has since started his own photography business and gallery. His photos and stories have won numerous awards, been printed in National Geographic magazine, been featured on postage stamps and postcards of Nebraska, and served as the subject of books, art exhibits and television documentaries.
