Liquid Assets: New York's Watersheds & Waterways

Thursday, February 22, 2018 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Museum of New York City 1220 Fifth Ave at 103rd St.

What can New York City do to protect its drinking water supply and its recreational waters in the coming decades? How is that supply affected by climate change, and what must we do to adapt? Join urban ecologist Timon McPhearson, former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Al Appleton, and President of Riverkeeper, Paul Gallay, for a deep dive into NYC's complex water systems, which powerfully illustrate our city's dependency on - and symbiotic relationship to -  its larger regional environment and economy.

Additional speakers to be announced shortly; check back and join our email list for updates.

This is the third program in our new series, New York's Future in a Changing Climate, which explores the challenges and opportunities presented in the Museum's Future City Lab, the interactive third gallery in the New York at Its Core exhibition.
