Let’s Talk About: State of Water, State of Mind

January 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

Environmental author Cynthia Barnett in the light-filled office where she wrote The Sound of the Sea, her arm resting on the four books she has authored. The first three dealt with fresh water issues; this one “really completes the hydrologic cycle for me,” Barnett says.

As we approach the 50th Anniversary of The United States and Florida bedrock water legislation with the Clean Water Act, let’s consider a Shared ethic for water. Water defines us as Floridians no matter where we live. An award-winning environmental journalist who has reported on the water and climate change of the world, Cynthia Barnett, will discuss how citizens can get more engaged with our state’s most precious resource.

This program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Sanibel Community Association. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
