120 shipwrecks in proposed marine sanctuary

The Lake Michigan Lecture Series, sponsored by the Sheboygan County Historical Museum, continues on Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 6:30pm when we explore Sheboygan’s Wisconsin National Marine Sanctuary. The proposed 875 sq. mile preserve between Two Rivers and Port Washington, would be the nation’s second marine sanctuary located in the Great Lakes. Within the area, there have been over 120 reported vessels lost and 34 known shipwrecks found.

Tamara Thomsen, marine archaeologist with the Wisconsin Historical Society and an author of the proposal will be here to discuss the importance of preserving these underwater sites. She will be joined by Sheboygan City Planner, Chad Pelishek who will share the potential impact of the sanctuary on the Sheboygan community. Todd Brieby from Wisconsin Coastal Management will also be present. His focus will be on the process of creating the marine sanctuary.

The program will be held at the Sheboygan County Historical Museum, 3110 Erie Avenue, Sheboygan. This presentation is free to the public. No reservations are necessary.
