Biology Seminar Series Presents: Dr. Mitch Hunter

April 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm MDT

Farms Under Threat: Protecting Rural Landscapes and Livelihoods

ABSTRACT

Mitch Hunter will present on his work as research director at American Farmland Trust, the only national non-profit organization that focuses on protecting agricultural land, promoting sustainable farming practices, and keeping farmers on the land. He will present findings from AFT’s recent report Farms Under Threat: The State of the States, which used geospatial data analysis and in-depth policy research to determine the level of threat to farmland and ranchland in each of the lower 48 states, as well as how each state has responded. This research is being used to inform policies and programs at the local, state, and national levels. Mitch will talk about his career spanning research and policy and how scientists can have fulfilling careers outside of academia.
