Milwaukee: A City Built on Water
Lake Michigan and the rivers that feed it have been Milwaukee’s dominant natural resources since the days of the Potawatomi. Join me for a lively illustrated look at the lake and its adjacent watersheds. See how they served the community as transportation routes, recreational resources, and industrial corridors, and how they have weathered a cycle of heavy use and flagrant abuse to emerge as focal points of both celebration and concern in the twenty-first century. An optional dusk hike will precede the program at 5:00. Visit the Audubon Center website to purchase tickets for the talk or the talk and hike. A book sale and signing will wrap up the evening.
