A symposium this Thursday at the University of Minnesota will explore landscape health and healthy relationships to land, as seen from the knowledge frameworks of older, traditional cultures in Minnesota.

The symposium, "Landscape Health: Diverse Knowledge Traditions," will include a keynote presentation by Dudley Edmondson, facilitated panel conversations and small group discussions on the topics of indigenous environmental knowledge and community-based African knowledge systems. The event is part of the college's and university's celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Act that created land-grant universities in the United States.
