Maritime Archaeology Speaker Event
A reminder to join us under the tent this Saturday, July 30th from 1PM-3PM at the 1860 Light Station for a hands-on presentation by Jordan Ciesielczyk-Gibson, Educator and Maritime Archaeologist with the Wisconsin Historical Society’s Maritime Preservation and Archaeology Program. Jordon has worked both as a museum educator and as a archaeologist both on land and under the water.
Jordan will talk about dive gear and show you the equipment that a diver needs to do their job. He also will have a large map where kids of all ages can take their boat on a great lakes voyage to learn about great lakes geography and the types of jobs great lakes ships performed. He’ll have puzzles for you to complete that show historic great lakes type vessels and pictures of actual shipwrecks where you can match parts of a ship and so much more!!
The Light Station will be open on Saturday from 1PM-4PM. Children over six can climb to the tower for a $3.00 admission fee. Adults are $6.00 The presentation is free. So come up to the bluff!
