What is Your Water Story?
When: February 18th, 2020 7:00 PM
Where: River Resource Center (10 Maple Avenue, Asbury, NJ 08802)
How Much: This event is free to attend!
What: The Great State of New Jersey is shaped by water, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Raritan River, Lake Hopatcong to the Delaware Bay. Our lives, just like our geography, are shaped by water too. Recreation and travel (ever spent time at the Jersey shore?), water management and delivery infrastructure in our own communities (ever flushed a toilet?), and impact and transportation (ever purchased something from overseas?) - just like turning on the kitchen faucet, it's all a part of our everyday.
As part of building a statewide water story archive, the New Jersey Council of Humanities is asking residents to reflect upon and share their perspectives and memories about water. We are hosting these hour-long public discussions in every count of the state to capture stories about the different ways water matters to New Jerseyans. What New Jersey water source or waterway is most meaningful to you? How do you want to preserve such a resource for the future? Why? We want to know!
Each community conversation invites participants to share and/or listen and to meaningful memories and experiences of water in New Jersey. Participants will have the opportunity to contribute their water story to a statewide public archive documenting personal connections to water and waterways in New Jersey.
WHY JOIN THE DISCUSSION?
*Your voice matters - contribute your water story to the archive for future generations.
*No prior preparation is needed to attend, and all are welcome to share or listen.
*Explore the connective role of water among diverse New Jersey communities
*We rarely dedicate time and space to dive into dialogue about our most vital resources.
*Documentation of what water sources we value is critical for ensuring their protection.
* Everyone has a water story. What's yours?
What is your water story is hosted by: the Musconetocng Watershed Association, New Jersey Council for the Humanities, and the Smithsonian Institution Water Ways Exhibit.
