The Lake Hopatcong Foundation (LHF) is hosting the Smithsonian’s Water/Ways exhibition through August 10 at the LHF Environmental and Cultural Center, and the interactive exhibit contains something for any age.
As you take a self-guided tour through the exhibit, you’ll find it not only educational, but also fun as there are many areas where you can directly interact with the exhibit, or even use kiosks to lookup different subjects.
Water/Ways explores the endless motion of the water cycle, water’s effect on landscape, settlement and migration, and its impact on culture and spirituality. It looks at how political and economic planning have long been affected by access to water and control of water resources. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.
Location: LHF Environmental and Cultural Center
Address: 125 Landing Road, Landing, NJ
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Viewing hours are:
Monday through Wednesday – 10 am – 4 pm
Thursday through Friday – 10 am – 8 pm
Saturday – 11 am – 3 pm
More about Smithsonian’s Water/Ways exhibition:
The Water/Ways exhibition is part of Museum on Main Street, a unique collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities. This exhibit is hosted by the Lake Hopatcong Foundation at the Lake Hopatcong Environmental and Cultural Center. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
The Water/Ways exhibition dives into water–an essential component of life on our planet, environmentally, culturally, and historically. Water/Ways was inspired by an Exhibition organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York and the Science Museum of Minnesota, St. Paul, in collaboration with Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland; The Field Museum, Chicago; Instituto Sangari, Sao Paulo, Brazil; National Museum of Australia, Canberra; Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada; San Diego Natural History Museum; and Science Centre Singapore with PUB Singapore.
