On the Road to… Dr. Larry Butler.August 1, 2022
Growing up in rural Texas, Larry heard stories of his relatives enduring hardships that were the result of the 1930s Dust Bowl. His family’s connection to those trying times plateaued with the loss of multiple lives as the result of a single tornado. These tragedies spoke to the young man’s heart. Originally on the path to become an electrical engineer, the rural Texas dust whispered to his soul… he needed to be part of a solution. This was the catalyst that launched a lifelong journey to conserve the blessings of the top soil that belongs to the High Plains of the Western United States. Larry’s desire to relegate the Dust Bowl to American history books, had him embark on a decades long passion for soil conservation that culminated with the award winning TV show, Out On The Land.
Please join me to hear the story of a man who dedicated his life to the soil and those that farm and ranch our blessed America.
