Parker, instructor of environmental technology at Pennsylvania College of Technology, will present a Library Forum program on Oct. 23 describing his experiences helping American Indian tribes nationwide fight “agroterrorism” the intentional attempt to compromise the country’s food supply.

The session, which will be presented from 4 to 5 p.m. in Room 102 of the Madigan Library at Penn College, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
