Ken Ilgunas, noted author and journalist, will present Trespassing Across America at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, February 21st, in Selby 150. "From the Alberta oil sands to the Gulf Coast of Texas, hear about the world's first modern journey across private property, which trespassed over the Great Plains to answer the question: What is our personal responsibility as stewards of the land?" Ilgunas walked 1,700 miles across North America, following the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline, from Hardisty, Alberta, to the Gulf Coast of Texas. On his journey he encountered stampedes of cows, charging moose, and climate change deniers.
