The Water Ways lecture series continues at the Florence Community Library, with a presentation about Ernest W. McFarland’s work on the Central Arizona Project!
Join us Friday, December 14 at 6:00 pm as Joanna Brace, curator of Arizona State Parks and Trails, delivers her presentation, Vision Realized: Ernest W. McFarland and the Central Arizona Project. The Central Arizona Project, a 336 mile canal system that brings water to Central and Southern Arizona, had to overcome significant obstacles to move from vision to reality. Today, water delivered by CAP impacts 80% of the state’s population. Learn how McFarland led the charge in the US Senate, then continued the fight as Arizona’s governor, to secure passage of the bill that laid the foundation for the state’s largest renewable water supply!
This event is free and open to the public, and will be held at the Town of Florence Library and Community Center. This program is in partnership with the Smithsonian on Main Street Water/Ways exhibition, open November 17 – December 30 at McFarland State Historic Park.
