Naturalist Ernie Martin from Lake Thunderbird State Park will bring animals that make their homes in water for discussion about the importance of water and wildlife conservation. Children will learn more about the relatedness of the natural world and strategies for protecting our land and water quality.
Water/Ways has been made possible in Norman, Oklahoma, through the Pioneer Library System’s East branch by Oklahoma Humanities. Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
Water/Ways was adapted from an exhibition organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org), and the Science Museum of Minnesota, St. Paul (www.smm.org), in collaboration with Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland; The Field Museum, Chicago; Instituto Sangari, Sao Paulo, Brazil; National Museum of Australia, Caberra; Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada; San Diego Natural History Museum; and Science Centre Singapore with PUB Singapore.
