Join us in the Lichtenstein theater for a morning of short format "PechaKucha" style talks on water issues in our region from eight local, influential and knowledgeable speakers. This program is presented in conjunction with Platform: Maya Lin and jointly organized with The Nature Conservancy. 

Watershed presenters include: Glynis Berry AIA, a LEED accredited architect with the U.S. Green Building Council who servers on the Suffolk County Planning Commission; Christopher J. Gobler, a specialist on the subject of harmful algal blooms and a professor at SUNY Stony Brook’s School of Atmospheric and Marine Sciences Nancy Kelley, Executive Director of The Nature Conservancy on Long Island; Hampton Bays bayman Ken Mades, whose local catches include everything from blue craw crabs to butterfish; Southampton resident and Executive Director of the Lloyd Magothy Water Trust, Thomas McAbee; Anna Throne-Holst, Southampton Town Supervisor who is working with Governor Cuomo on initiatives to improve water quality and resiliency on Long Island; Edwina von Gal, East Hampton-based landscape architect and President of the Azuero Earth Project whose mission is to preserve the earth’s ecosystems, protect biodiversity, and promote healthy communities; and artist and teacher at the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, Allan Wexler, whose work in the fields of architecture, design, and fine art explores human activity and the built environment.

The Museum's programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the property taxpayers from the Southampton School District and the Tuckahoe Common School District.
