    Dr. Campbell’s  talk will cover three major time periods from far gone eras when wooly mammoths and perhaps an occasional sabre tooth tiger roamed, to the 1800’s during Abraham Lincoln’s life, when not only wolves but an occasional timber rattlers could visit.  The final era is now and what still remains and may in fact be returning  to the wilds of Logan County.   

    Dr. Campbell, who has taught at Lincoln College for twenty-two years offering courses in both life and earth sciences, holds bachelor and master degrees from Texas Tech University and a doctorate in zoology from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.   He is also the director of the Creekside Center for Environmental Education, a new offering through Lincoln College’s Biology Department.

Midwest Living Review
by Karen Sorensen


"Don't be surprised by the Alice-in-Wonderland nature of the Wild Hare Cafe's decor, which incongruously proves to be a nice complement to its simple but eclectic menu".
