Coffee and Conversations: Sacred Waters with Dr. Victoria Machado
This presentation explores efforts to restore Florida’s waterways. We will investigate the motivations of environmentalists who love and advocate for these water bodies. By focusing on issues related to springs and the Everglades, we will dive into the conversations that arise when Floridians view water as essential to their quality of life. This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. A virtual livestream is also available for viewers at home!
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.
