VALENTINE, NE: Water/Ways, a traveling exhibition from Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program, will be on display at the Niobrara National Scenic River (NSR) Visitor Center from Saturday, June 23rd until August 3rd, 2018.

“Water/Ways” explores the endless motion of the water cycle, water’s effect on landscape, settlement and migration, and its impact on culture and spirituality. It looks at how political and economic planning have long been affected by access to water and control of water resources. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.

Sponsored by Humanities Nebraska, this exhibition will tour six Nebraska communities from June 2018 through April 2019. The Museum on Main Street program—a national/state/local partnership—brings exhibitions and programs to rural cultural organizations.

The Niobrara NSR Visitor Center is located at 214 West Highway 20 in Valentine. Summer hours are from 8:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Central time. For more information, please call 402-376-1901, email e-mail us or visit www.nps.gov/niob.
