NAC Lecture: 'Minot's Oak Park'

Minot State University's Northwest Art Center lecture series presents "America's Favorite Park: Minot's Oak Park." Daniel Ngugi, MSU assistant economics professor, will lead the lecture.

In the spring and summer of 2011, Minot residents campaigned in the social media to have Oak Park chosen as America's Favorite Park, earning a $100,000 award from the Coca-Cola company. "This campaign and the enthusiasm with which it was conducted demonstrated the great value that people attach to the park," Ngugi said.

With the assistance of a research grant from MSU, Ngugi investigated the economic value that people attach to Oak Park and factors that may influence their opinions. He also examined how often and for what kind of activities people use the park. He will share his findings at the lecture.

In addition to teaching economics at MSU, Ngugi conducts research in the area of environmental and natural resource economics, including the economics of climate change.

The event is free and open to the public, and parking is unrestricted.
