Volo Bog State Natural Area to host author talk

INGLESIDE – Volo Bog State Natural Area and Friends of Volo Bog will host author Dr. Steven Davis of Edgewood College (Madison, Wisconsin) to discuss his book, “In Defense of Public Lands: The Case Against Privatization and Transfer.”

The event will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. June 2.

“Debates continue to rage over the merits or flaws of public land and whether or not it should be privatized – or at least radically reconfigured in some way. ‘In Defense of Public Lands’ offers a comprehensive refutation of the market-oriented arguments. Steven Davis passionately advocates that public land ought to remain firmly in the public’s hands. He reviews empirical data and theoretical arguments from biological, economic and political perspectives in order to build a case for why our public lands are an invaluable and irreplaceable asset for the American people.” – from an Amazon Review of his book.

The talk is free. Books will be available for sale. Seating is limited. Registration is required by emailing dnr.volobog@illinois.gov or calling 815-344-1294. Please give name, phone number and email.
