The lecture was entitled Frac Sand Mining, A Cautionary Tale. It was led by Dale Murray, Associate Professor of Philosophy at UW Baraboo/Sauk County in conjunction with the Baraboo Range Preservation Association.

Professor Murray provided a perspective on silica mining for the hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) process now being used to tap into our nation’s natural gas reserves. Dr. Murray is the local campus environmental ethicist, and his lecture discussed what price is paid as these mines creep closer to the Baraboo Hills.
