History Museum program on Florida’s Water Stories April 15

April 12, 2022

3rd on 3rd Lecture

Friday, April 15, at 6pm

This talk examines the history of human interaction with water in Florida. From the mid-19th century, humans have reshaped Florida by dredging and moving water to make the state more habitable. We will look at what this has done to Florida’s fragile environment and where we stand now regarding Florida and water. Noll is a master lecturer in the history department at the University of Florida.

Attendance is free for museum members with a suggested donation of $5 for nonmembers. Seating is limited on a first come, first served basis. This program is wheelchair accessible.

This talk is a series program for Museum on Main Street’s Water/Ways exhibit, opening at AIMH in May. Museum on Main Street is 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.
