Florida and Water: A Historical Perspective

April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Smithsonian’s Water/Ways exhibition

Steve Noll, master lecturer, discusses 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 accompanies Water/Ways Smithsonian exhibit on display at the Barron Library in LaBelle.

Water/Ways is part of 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.
