February 10 Speech & Hike: Ghetto Plainsman

Ghetto Plainsman: One Man’s Journey Towards Ecological Health
Texas State, Evans Liberal Arts 116, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

As part of Texas State’s Common Experience sustainability theme for 2010-11, Jarid Manos, founder of the Great Plains Restoration Council  and author of Ghetto Plainsman, will be speaking about his incredible life journey. Jarid’s is a deeply spiritual story of redemption and healing through America’s underbelly and soul, from a rural childhood to the inner city streets to the even more violent outback of the American West. This journey led Jarid to find solace in nature, and he now works to restore and protect our shattered prairies and plains by promoting Ecological Health. Jarid believes that protecting wild nature is a matter of public health, and participating hands-on in its recovery offers therapeutic modalities for many social and physical ills. His own life has been a testimony to that, as he will share from his memoir Ghetto Plainsman, which was recently reviewed by the Huffington Post.
