Yakima Valley Community College’s 2013-2014 Faculty Lecture Series continues on Feb. 26 with Dr. Ken Zontek presenting Buffalo Nation.

The lecture, Buffalo Nation, will describe the efforts that saved the American bison from extinction and subsequent leadership by native Americans to save the iconic species as a free ranging animal. Dr. Zontek will shed light on the pivotal role played by Native Americans, women, and Westerners as opposed to the Eastern elite.

The event will take place on Feb.26, at 7:00pm in the Parker Roomat YVCC's Yakima campus.

The event is sponsored by YVCC’s Arts and Sciences Division and Phi Theta Kappa Student Club. For more information, call 509.574.4809.
