Saint Joseph’s College will host alumnus Kris Krouse ’02 as a guest lecturer in Core 6: Humanity in the Universe II on Friday, April 11 at 10:00 am CDT. The lecture takes place during a portion of Core 6 that discusses environmental consciousness. Students and employees are encouraged to join Krouse for lunch in the Halleck Student Center cafeteria immediately following the lecture.
Krouse is the executive director of Shirley Heinze Land Trust in Valparaiso, Ind. Established in 1981 as a charitable trust to preserve and protect the unique ecosystems of the Indiana Dunes region, the nonprofit organization manages nearly 1,300 acres in Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties. Included in the Heinze organization’s holdings are examples of the entire spectrum of natural communities in the area: tallgrass prairie, high dune, oak savanna, boreal flatwoods, woodlands, and marsh habitats. Five Shirley Heinze Land Trust properties are dedicated Indiana State Nature Preserves.
