Project title: Changing Waters: The Impact of Hydroelectric Development on the Landscape of British Columbia from the Ron Waters Collection
Organization: Nelson and District Museum, Archives, Art Gallery and Historical Society
Description: Changing Waters features more than 500 colour slides from the late 1950s to the early 1980s of the Kootenay Region, many from mining roads only accessible by four-wheel drive. The majority of the slides highlight the changes to the landscape brought on by the hydroelectric development in the area.

We are also featuring an oversized colouring wall outside of the library in support of the Oh Canada! art project with Natalie LeBlanc. The image will be constructed over the week as people contribute, piece by piece. Smaller pieces of the larger image have been distributed for people to colour. They can then tape their piece to the larger image. Please come to the UBC Education Library circulation desk to participate in this exciting project!
Hope to see you at some of the events!
