With experience supported by decades of meticulous research, including the project that breathed new life into the 1841 whaleship CHARLES W. MORGAN, artisans continue their work at our Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard. They work to give new life to MAYFLOWER II and our coal-fired wooden steamboat, SABINO. They honor centuries-old ways with a contemporary feel to restore last-of-their-kind vessels: http://bit.ly/1GHrVfE.

This ‪‎Earth Day‬ we remember that special moment last summer when the whaleship CHARLES W. MORGAN, nearly 100 years after its last voyage, sailed among whales during a visit to the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. While there, the MORGAN crew teamed up with NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries staff to conduct outreach activities highlighting the sanctuary’s role in whale conservation and ocean research. Today we honor America’s changing relationship to the natural world—though whales were once hunted to almost extinction, now America celebrates the whale and works for its recovery.

+Joseph Reger Unfortunately, for the most part the regatta cannot be seen from land. A spectator can watch the boats go past Goat Island, but otherwise the regatta is held on the far side of the Newport Bridge in the waters off the U.S. Naval War College.

Our 2014-2015 Adventure Series concludes today with Professor Jim Carlton’s presentation, “Coming to America: The Story of the Japanese Tsunami Marine Debris.” In 2011, the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami ejected a vast field of debris into the North Pacific Ocean—including boats, docks and sea buoys that either already had Japanese marine life aboard or, once in the ocean, soon acquired an array of ocean animals and plants. Carlton, director of the Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program, will discuss the more than 200 species that survived the voyage to America.

Programs are at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Call 860.572.5331 for tickets ($15 for members, $20 for non-members): http://bit.ly/1OixOif
