Event: Where the River Meets the Memory Makers
Date: Thu, Aug 16th 2012, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Location: First United Methodist Church, Napa 5th & Randolph Street Napa, CA 94559
Description: Where the River Meets the Memory Makers:
In conjunction with Friends of the Napa River and to celebrate two brand new books (Napa River Historical Ecology Atlas: Exploring a Hidden Landscape of Transformation and Resilience, and, Memory Bank II: an Exhibition of Place and People, the photographic catalog), Preservation Napa Valley presents an incredible panel: Director Wendy Ward, photographer Sally Seymour, ecologist Shari Gardner, Frances Proctor (Memory Bank subject) and one more fine mystery panelist.
We will talk about two intersecting items: what the Napa River meant to people, how we have changed it, and what it means to us today. And, there is a juncture where land and people meet; who are the folks that transformed this Valley and what are their stories?
