MIC Lecture Series: John Ninnemann – John Wesley Powell: Down the Great Unknown

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In 1869 Civil War veteran, John Wesley Powell, accomplished a daring feat no one else before him had survived; running the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Much more than a publicity stunt, his river trips charted previously unknown territory, introduced the Nation to regional Indian cultures, and generated questions we are still asking today about water management. This presentation not only celebrates Powell’s fearless accomplishments 150 years ago, but also shows us how prophetic he was about one of the major issues facing the West today; our limited water supply.
