The History of the Caloosahatchee River
Amy Bennett Williams, writer for the Ft. Myers News-Press and author of Along the Caloosahatchee River, will take listeners on a historical trip down the Caloosahatchee River with images she’s collected of the river. She will talk about the ways in which the river has changed over time, the role it played in human history in the region, and what we can expect, environmentally, moving forward. 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.
