This presentation by Blue Water Baltimore explores the natural history of water and examines how earthlings (human and otherwise) have interacted with this mysterious substance over geological time. We will explore how human activities have impacted the Earth’s natural water cycle on an unprecedented scale and discuss solutions that individuals and communities can implement to mitigate the challenges we face. This PowerPoint-based session is delivered in an entertaining storytelling format full of striking imagery that will get you thinking about water in a new way. Supported with a grant from Maryland Humanities Museum on Main Street program.
The Historical Society of Baltimore County (HSBC) will be the first of six Maryland sites to host Water/Ways, a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, brought to the state by the Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. Water/Ways will be open to the public in the historic Almshouse in Cockeysville for six weeks, from May 25 to July 6, 2019, during HSBC’s 60th anniversary year.
From Western Maryland to the lower Eastern Shore, our state is rich with water: it’s part of our history, our culture, our future. Maryland H2O shines the spotlight on it, through Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street tour of the traveling exhibit Water/Ways, the Smithsonian exhibition H2O Today, and engaging programs to spark a statewide discussion about water.
This event is listed as part of Maryland Humanities’ Maryland H2O initiative and #ValueWater programming.
