  1. As member of a supporting organization that put together the American Museum of Natural History’s interactive map of the NYC watershed, go to the traveling water exhibit H2O=Life to find out more on water issues, hydrology, and other resources: http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/water/

    The traveling exhibit may end up in a city near you, so check out this link for more info: http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/water/?section=visitorinfo
