UNL’s annual spring semester water and natural resources seminar will feature local, national and international experts addressing topics from dryland agricultural conservation to what’s really contained in floodwaters.

The 14-lecture series begins Jan. 14 and concludes April 22. All but one of the free public lectures will be in the first floor auditorium of Hardin Hall. Weekly lectures are Wednesdays, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., except March 18.

“These speakers cover a very broad and timely slate of water and climate-related topics that there is wide local interest in,” said Kyle Hoagland, director of the UNL Water Center.

UNL ecosystem ecologist Dave Wedin begins the series Jan. 14 with an in-depth look at rooting depths and soil moisture depletions in the Nebraska Sandhills.

After they are presented, lectures will be available online at
