Warwick Town Historian to host conversation Oct. 15 on our most vital resource: Water

| 27 Sep 2019 | 01:35

Join Dr. Richard Hull for an important conversation about key water sources in Orange County, and the ways they have impacted the development of communities including the economy, environment, health and tourism on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the A.W. Buckbee Center, 2 Colonial Ave., Warwick.

Hull critically examines how individuals, groups and municipalities in Orange County have for centuries managed, and in some cases mismanaged, the water resources in the area.

See the issue through the lens of historical context and learn about what steps are being taken in Orange County to protect our most vital resource.

Hull is Professor Emeritus of History at New York University, a former trustee of The Nature Conservancy, the Orange County Land Trust and the Warwick Historical Society, and is the official Historian of the Town of Warwick.

He hosts the weekly WTBQ radio show, "History Alive," and was recently awarded the Franklin D. Roosevelt Local Government Historian Professional Achievement Award in the Practice of Public History in New York State.

The event is free and open to the public; donations appreciated. Call 845-986-3236 for reservations.
