Lake Michigan and the rivers that feed it have been Milwaukee's dominant natural resources since the days of the Potawatomi. Join historian John Gurda for a lively illustrated look at the lake and its adjacent watersheds. See how they served the community as transportation routes, recreational resources, and industrial corridors, and how they have weathered a cycle of heavy use and flagrant abuse to emerge as focal points of both celebration and concern in the twenty-first century. Free to attend. Registration begins October 22. Advance registration is required. Space is limited.
John Gurda is a Milwaukee-born writer and historian who has been studying his hometown since 1972. He is the author of 22 books, including The Making of Milwaukee. In addition to his work as an author, he is a frequent speaker on Milwaukee topics, local history columnist for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and the bike-riding historian on Milwaukee PBS’s popular series Around the Corner with John McGivern.
