Come join Natural History Society of Maryland for another great program. At this week’s free Nature Connections we will be bringing the stream indoors! Join us for an exciting afternoon where we will take an in-depth look at streams by examining how urban infrastructure affects a stream’s health and biology. View a variety of live aquatic insects under a microscope and discover how living in different communities influences their ecosystem.
Special Presentation: 1:15pm: Dr. Ken Belt talk, The 4 Dimensions of Urban Streams & The Strong Connections Between Watersheds, Groundwater and Stream Ecosystems

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.
