      Sherb Talk: The History of Public Lands Presented by Walt Dabney

      Join former National Park Ranger and Superintendent and Texas State Parks Director, Walt Dabney for answers to these, and more, questions: Where did our Public Lands come from? Why do the western states have lots and other states almost none? How were states formed? What does the Constitution say about these lands? What was the effect of the Homestead Act and the Railroad Act? How were National Parks and Forests established? Why are these lands held “in common”, so important to us today? These and other questions and past and current issues are addressed in this hour long presentation. Questions and discussion time to follow.
