As was expressed in the constitutional logic behind the Weeks Act that led to the protection of the White Mountains, land and water are connected. This presentation, which is based partly on research that went into "Water Connections" (a non-fiction book published in 2019 about what inland waters mean to us and what we mean to water), explores the many relationships between inland waters and surrounding lands. The talk explores recent experiences involving contamination, floods, stream crossings and citizen action, among other topics.

Speaker: Jim Rousmaniere, journalist and historian
