The Panama Canal Watershed: Science, Commerce, and Sustainability
September 18, 2014, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dr. Jefferson Hall, Staff Scientist, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama
The Panama Canal depends on a supply of fresh water, but the state of the Canal watershed reflects a global competition for land, water, and all of the goods and services that provide for a growing population. The Smithsonian’s reforestation work in Panama to protect its valuable watershed is at the intersection of science, commerce, policy, and nature.
The event is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited and e-tickets are required.
This lecture is co-sponsored with the Smithsonian Institution and Kansas City Public Library.
