EVENT: Our Water, Our Future – September 7 – Lake City

posted on September 6, 2012 in Calendar,Events,Water Issues

You are invited to attend a free multi-media evening sponsored by the Florida Gateway College and the Lake City/Columbia County Chamber of Commerce for an evening of inspiration and learning about north Florida’s water.

Having experienced extremes from droughts to floods citizens of North Florida are wanting to learn about how they can protect their valuable resource. The evening will feature nationally recognized photographer John Moran who will share his vision of how things have changed over the years.  Dr. Robert Knight of the Springs Institute will provide the left brain perspective of a scientist with a primer on north Florida’s hydrology and current concerns.  The event will include music, videos, and singing children along with a chance to network with local elected officials and the water centric non-profit organizations of the area.

This event has been spearheaded by Together Green Fellow Jacqui Sulek:

“I have been totally inspired by Cynthia Barnett. Reading her book Blue Revolution – Unmaking America’s Water Crisis, I have come to believe that when we stop pointing fingers and all come together as a community to solve a problem we will create a community where business can grow,  people can prosper and our natural systems will continue to flourish.”

WHEN: Friday, September 7 – 7:00 -9:00 p.m.

WHERE: Alfonso Levy Performing Arts Center at Florida Gateway College, Lake City, FL
