Finding Meaning in Our Shared Watersheds

May 3, Thursday, 7 p.m.

Moderated by Gaye Symington, President of the High Meadows Fund, this panel discussion will explore such questions as: Why do watersheds matter in our communities? How do watershed dynamics affect our lives, and vice versa? How can we promote place-based meaning and awareness within our shared watersheds, and how would that impact flood resilience, ecological integrity, or community development? What does it mean to be a water protector in your own community?

Rhonda Anderson, indigenous and water rights activist and speaker
Peter Forbes, writer, conservationist, and co-founder of the Center for Whole Communities
Steve Libby, Executive Director of the Vermont River Conservancy

This event is presented in connection with The Confluence Project, an experiment in creative placemaking organized by Vermont Performance Lab and Windham Regional Commission.
