Environmental Memories of South Central Phoenix exhibit, Sept. 6 to Dec. 7

[Source: Arizona State University] – Long ago, the Salt River flowed through southern Phoenix. Canals lined with shady cottonwood trees carried water to farms. Families picnicked on the riverbank, caught fish, and swam in the refreshing water.

These and other memories of south central Phoenix from the late 1800s to the present will be displayed in a new exhibit. “Environmental Memories of South Central Phoenix” pairs research on environmental change, urban vulnerability to climate change, and environmental justice with local stories, photographs, and timelines to provide fascinating insights into some of Phoenix’s oldest neighborhoods.

The exhibit was researched, produced, and designed by a collaborative, interdisciplinary team of graduate students and co-sponsored by ASU’s School of Human Evolution and Social Change and local community partners.
