The Water/Ways initiative seeks to engage residents across the nation in conversations regarding the relationships between their communities and their waterways. The central role of water in our lives is an important global issue we, at MoMS, are examining in two traveling exhibitions: H2O Today and Water/Ways. The newsletter and exhibitions are part of a larger, on-going Smithsonian effort to join and highlight conversations taking place on a global scale.
In this first issue, we take a closer look at why water matters and highlight how communities in Florida and Minnesota are sharing water stories through the Water/Ways exhibit and local programming. In subsequent issues, we will continue to explore how the various communities that form the MoMS network have engaged in the various issues pertaining to their waterways and celebrated the vital role these waterways play in the health of their communities.
We hope you enjoy the Think Water newsletter and that you will share it with your colleagues and friends
