Launch Event, Sunday September 12, 1pm-2:30pm
Join a watershed historian, a former DEP commissioner, a climate journalist, a counter-cartographer, and special guests for a conversation about the past, present, and future of the NYC water system in the Catskills. This event launches the Views from the Watershed podcast tour, which tells the story of the complicated relationship between the Catskills and New York City, forged by water infrastructure. Views from the Watershed leads listeners to resonant places in the watershed where its stories can be told, through firsthand, intimate perspectives from local people on what it means to be a part of the water system.
