About the Exhibition

Join the Autry as we discover what and why are they important in our newest exhibition changeout, Waterways, in the permanent Human Nature exhibition.

A waterway is a river, canal, or ocean passage that serves as a route of travel or transport, like veins or highways. Waterways are sacred. They are lifelines, essential for survival, and what connects us all. Waterways have provided resources and connections for thousands of years and deserve our protection.

The Waterways changeout will focus on the ongoing and interdependent relationships between the people and natural environments of California. It will highlight cultural history, traditional ecological knowledge, and contemporary practices to address environmental problems facing Californians today.

Waterways is sponsored by Edison International, the Paloheimo Foundation, and the Steinmetz Foundation.
