In less than half a century, South Florida has gone from a land of too much water to one where the valuable resource is being stretched thinner and thinner. Dr. Steve Noll, a senior lecturer in the history department at the University of Florida, will talk about the history of Florida’s water landscape during “Florida’s Environmental History.” Dr. Noll received his Ph.D. from the University of Florida in 1991. He taught special education in the public schools of Alachua County for 28 years before commencing his full-time position at UF in 2004. He has written extensively on two widely disparate topics: Florida history and the environment, and disability history. Sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council, this lecture is free and open to the public. Seating is limited; please be sure to RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (954) 463-4431, ext. 16.
