Coffee and Conversations: Florida Water Stories with Dr. Steve Noll
In this program, the energetic Dr. Noll will explore Florida’s long and difficult relationship with water, its attempts to turn land into water and water into land, and the contentious issues involving the Everglades, the Ocklawaha River, political battles with Alabama and Georgia, and the potential impact of sea-level rise. This program is free and open to the public. Dr. Noll will deliver his presentation by Zoom and guests may watch from home or join us for a special live screening of the program at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum, where the galleries, including the Smithsonian Water/Ways exhibit, will be open for after-hours viewing from 5 p.m. to the end of the program at 8:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
Water/Ways is part of the Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
