FHDC Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild
September 23, 2023 - January 7, 2024
Discover the beauty and majesty of America’s Great Plains in the work of award-winning photographer Michael Forsberg. Traveling 100,000 miles over four years, Forsberg crisscrossed the Plains from Canada to Mexico, capturing the wildlife, habitats, and conservation challenges in the heart of the continent.
Originally a book project, Forsberg set out to capture what some outside observers call “flyover country” in an attempt to bring attention to and build appreciation for this often-overlooked region. Inspiring, informative, and timely – the exhibit is a love letter to this endangered ecosystem.
On Friday, November 3, join Forsberg at the Discovery Center for a private tour with a VIP Gallery Walk and a public presentation during which he will share the story of the dedicated people working to keep the wild prairie alive. His presentation will reflect deeply on this human-landscape relationship in the tallgrass prairie of the Flint Hills of Kansas and across the prairie of North America.

60 full color photographs highlighting the Southern Plains, Northern Plains, and Tallgrass Prairie regions
