World Ocean Day meets the Great Lakes! Ocean Exploration Trust is beginning the 2021 season in Michigan on Lake Huron for a 3-week expedition. Join us for a look back into the history of scientific exploration in Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary including work with OET team members 20 years ago to discover some of the 80+ shipwrecks protected in this area. Bring your questions for a live conversation with Sanctuary Superintendent Jeff Gray, Expedition Leader Dwight Coleman, Mission Support Katie Lohr, and Education Coordinator Sarah Waters to learn how Michigan gained a National Marine Sanctuary, why this region is important to protect, and the many ways you can get involved in this sanctuary and others near you!
