Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations: Baxter Hall Lovell Lecture Hall, 11:50AM
Pizza in Baxter Lobby at 11:50 before the talk at noon in Baxter Hall 101 (Lovell)by Dr. David Montgomery entitled Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations. In Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations, Montgomery makes the case that soil erosion should be seen as a threat to our planet as serious as climate change. Once bare of protective vegetation and exposed to wind and rain through agriculture, cultivated soils erode bit by bit, faster than they can be naturally replenished. The erosion is slow enough to be ignored in a single lifetime but fast enough over centuries to limit the lifespan of civilizations. In this engaging talk, Montgomery traces the role of soil use and abuse in the history of societies, from Mesopotamia to European colonialism and the American push westward. He explores how soil has shaped us and we have shaped soil. David Montgomery is a professor of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington and studies geomorphology, the evolution of landscapes. In 2008 he received a MacArthur 'genius' award for his “fundamental contributions to our understanding of the geophysical forces that determine landscape evolution and of how our use of soils and rivers has shaped civilizations past and present”. He has received two Washington State Book awards, one for King of Fish: The Thousand-Year Run of Salmon in 2004, and for Dirt:The Erosion of Civilizations in 2008.

Art Exhibit Opening; Habitat: Fine Arts Center Eric Dean Gallery, 7:00PM - 8:29PM
Opening Reception for Art Exhibit: Habitat from 7-8:30 pm in the Fine Arts Center.
The Habitat group exhibition highlights the artwork of sculptor Stacey Holloway and painters Tammie Brazee and Laura Carpenter Truitt. The exhibiting artists invite the viewer to consider the spaces in which we live and how we live in them at this moment in history from multiple vantage points. Stacey Holloway’s artwork arises from her experience living and working in the Midwest, a place she claims as her home in its entirety, inclusive of native geography and wildlife. Tammie Brazee’s paintings visually investigate the awkward and detached relationship that many Americans have with the natural world as manifested in the way we vacation in National Parks and other naturally beautiful places. Laura Carpenter Truitt’s paintings reference the interaction of architecture and landscape wherein physical space merges with abstract forms.
The exhibit continues through Saturday, October 12. Gallery hours: Monday-Friday 9 am - 5 pm and Saturday 10 am - 2 pm.

The Rocks Don't Lie: Baxter Hall Lovell Lecture Hall, 8:00PM
The Rocks Don't Lie: A Geologist Investigates Noah's Flood In Tibet, geologist David R. Montgomery heard a local story about a great flood that bore a striking similarity to Noah’s Flood. Intrigued, Montgomery began investigating the world’s flood stories and—drawing from historic works by theologians, natural philosophers, and scientists—discovered the counterintuitive role that the story of Noah’s Flood played in the development of both geology and creationism. Montgomery will take us for a journey across landscapes and cultures with an explorer’s eye and a refreshing approach to both faith and science. In the process we discover the elusive nature of truth, whether viewed through the lens of science or religion, and how our understanding changed through history and continues changing today. David R. Montgomery is a professor of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington, studying geomorphology, the evolution of landscapes. In 2008 he received a MacArthur 'genius' award for his “fundamental contributions to our understanding of the geophysical forces that determine landscape evolution and of how our use of soils and rivers has shaped civilizations past and present”. He has received two Washington State Book awards, one for King of Fish: The Thousand-Year Run of Salmon in 2004, and for Dirt:The Erosion of Civilizations in 2008.
