From June 27 through July 8, the traveling exhibit Great Lakes Small Streams: How Water Shapes Wisconsin will be on display at the Corner of the Past Historical Museum in Sister Bay. The exhibit, which is part of the Wisconsin Historical Society’s “Dive In” initiative, provides a history of water in Wisconsin from pre-historic times through the present.
Comprised of 16 panels, Great Lakes Small Streams features an interactive kiosk that allows visitors to track the movement of glaciers, follow changes made to local rivers over time, or seek out easy solutions to save water in their own homes. It will stimulate visitors to think about and discuss how people interact with the environment – with emphasis on how our relationship with water shaped Wisconsin’s past and will continue to shape its future.
In conjunction with the display of Great Lakes Small Streams, Corner of the Past will offer water-related adventures for guests. Children’s activities include Can Your Boat Float?, Cleaning Water, and WI Travel Then and Now. On June 28, Trygvie Jensen, author of Wooden Boats and Iron Men will lead a discussion on our water heritage at the Annual Sister Bay Historical Society Membership Pot Luck Dinner.
Great Lakes Small Streams: How Water Shapes Wisconsin will be on display at Corner of the Past, 10310 Fieldcrest Road, Sister Bay. Admission is $5 and free for children under 12. For more information visit sisterbayhistory.org or call 920.854.7680.
