Water/Ways Wednesdays: We’re Going to Need a Bigger Boat! Life in the Florida Everglades

January 12 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

This virtual mini-series examines our interconnectedness through water and specifically Florida’s water. Inspired by the Smithsonian Institution Water/Ways traveling exhibit, Palm Beach County School District has partnered with the Scientist in Every Florida School to offer an engaging series of presentations in months of January and February that explore water through different lenses and careers. These events are geared toward grades 3-12 but open to all ages.

For those nearby, you can visit the Water/Ways exhibit at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center in Belle Glade, Florida from January 10-February 26, 2022.

Join Sara Ayers-Rigsby from the Florida Public Archaeology Network in this presentation about the Florida Everglades. Before roads and modern canals were built, people lived on tree island sites in the Everglades and traveled throughout South Florida in canoes. Learn how archaeologists interpret information and work with Florida’s Indigenous communities to help tell the story of our state’s past.
