Great Lakes exhibit Feb 5-19

Great Lakes Small Streams: How Water Shapes Wisconsin traveling exhibit tells the story of the region’s freshwater resource – one of the largest on the planet – and its relationship with the people of Wisconsin through the ages. The 16-panel display will be at the Fond du Lac Public Library February 5-19.

The Great Lakes shaped the landscape, history and communities of our state. The exhibit’s 16 panels tell the story of Wisconsin’s relationship with water in simple language, with reproductions of 70 historic and contemporary photographs and documents.

The Wisconsin Historical Society exhibit is presented by the Fond du Lac County Historical Society, which is bringing the exhibit to help celebrate Fond du Lac’s Sturgeon Spectacular events, February 9-11. More information about Sturgeon Spectacular is available at http://www.fdl.com/ss.
