We celebrate the end of the exhibition Land & Water with a presentation from Dr. Cora Lee Kluge, professor of German at the University of Wisconsin Madison, highlighting the story of how engineers in the US became quite interested in flood control methods used in Germany and during WWII they used German POWs to construct a 200-acre outdoor working model of the Mississippi River!

Join us for this can't miss program and the last day of Land & Water!
