Guest Speaker for The Origins Series

The Natural Setting, a talk by Kelby Ouchley is scheduled for Monday, September 27 as part of ULM's Origins Series. The Origins Series is an open forum scheduled throughout the fall semester at ULM.

Monday's presentation will be in the Nursing Building Auditorium room 107 at 7:15 p.m. All presentations are free and open to the public.

Kelby Ouchley will open the program on Origins by discussing the natural habitat of the Ouachita Valley. His observations on the flora and fauna of wetland areas will describe how this rich and diverse environment nurtured the efforts of the early mound builders and sustained the later cultures' tradition of constructing monumental earthworks.

The Louisiana Endowment sponsors the Origins Series for the Humanities and area supporters. Organizers hope to draw attention to the historical significance of "where we live" as a major locational advantage for our university and greater community.

The Fall Chautauqua Nexus schedule is also available. Some topics this fall are "From Dallas to Baghdad: Why the JFK Assassination Still Matters" by Gregory Pepetone; The City of Churches by Kenneth Robbins; and Stone Lithography: An Introduction by Doyle Geter.

All presentations are free and open to the public. The complete schedule for both series of talks can be found online at
