Sacred Waters: Exploring the Protection of Florida’s Fluid Landscapes

Broward County Library presents Sacred Waters: Exploring the Protection of Florida’s Fluid Landscapes with Dr. Victoria Machado. This presentation explores efforts to rethink Florida’s waterways. Utilizing the art of storytelling and drawing from the spirituality underlying the environmental movement, this presentation discusses the present-day efforts to restore Florida’s waterways and investigates the motivations of environmentalists who love and advocate for these water bodies. Victoria Machado is a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Studies at Rollins College, teaching Nature Writing and Nature Spirituality. Her chapter, Bioregionalism and the Catholic Worker Movement was published in Watershed Discipleship: Reinhabiting Bioregional Faith and Practice in 2016.
