How Geography Helps Us Understand Disasters and Epidemics

Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm
Chimney Rock National Historic Site


Epidemics and calamity have affected human history in myriad ways: demographically, culturally, politically, financially, and biologically. Humans have never known a time in history when epidemics did not loom large. Emily Houck, Nebraska Panhandle Conservation Director, will show how geography has caused calamities and affected human health.

Join us at the Ethel S. & Christopher J. Abbott Visitor Center for a free lecture as part of our Sunday Afternoon at the Rock 2018 series! The program begins at 1:30 pm and lasts an hour. Call ahead in case of inclement weather.
