MEET & GREET EVENT July 20-
7:00 PM Wisconsin Maritime Museum (In Manitowoc) will host a community Meet &Greet, called "Wine, Cheese & Shipwrecks" highlighting the Arctic project, and its results. Meet & Greet programs are public open houses held during a field project allowing the public a chance to speak with archaeologists and volunteers, getting a firsthand look at still and video images, the site plan, and equipment associated with underwater surveys. The event will offer the opportunity for local residents and visitors to ask questions about the project, maritime archaeology, and the importance of the preservation of Wisconsin's important resources.
There is no cost. The Museum portion of the building is closed by 7:00 PM.
