In honor of World Oceans Day, Blue Water Baltimore will be hosting our popular Water Pollution Reporting Workshop outside at our Herring Run Nursery. Join Blue Water Baltimore’s team of scientists to learn what kinds of pollutants are entering our streams and Harbor, how they’re getting there in the first place, and what you can do to fight it. You will learn how to identify illicit discharges, who to report pollution to, and how to engage your community in restoration events. Note: Rain Date, June 11, same time. 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.
