Great Lakes, Small Streams: How Water Shapes Wisconsin


We drink it, fish in it, clean with it, swim in it and travel across it. Water has always been critical for our survival.

The Great Lakes region is home to one of the largest freshwater resources on the planet. That water shaped the landscape, history, and communities of our state. The Wisconsin Historical Society's traveling display "Great Lakes Small Streams: How Water Shapes Wisconsin" explores our state's long relationship with water and the impact we have had on our vast waterways.

This display, on exhibit at the New Berlin Public library from May 1st until May 14th, is part of DIVE IN, an initiative exploring Wisconsin's water history through programs, events and exhibits from the Wisconsin Historical Society. The sixteen panels of "Great Lakes Small Streams" tell the story of Wisconsin's relationship with water in simple language, with reproductions of 70 historic and contemporary photographs and documents.
