Lost & Found: Legendary Lake Michigan Shipwrecks

June 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Titanic sank in 1912 & the stories of amazing survival & tragic loss made the ocean liner famous. Titanic’s discovery in 1985 made the ship legendary. Likewise, the Lake Michigan shipwrecks in this program became even more famous after their discoveries than at the time of their losses, gaining notoriety as historic attractions, archaeological sites, & in some cases, over bold salvage attempts or precedent-setting legal battles. Author & explorer Valerie van Heest will take you back in time to experience the careers & tragic sinking of these ships, then beneath the lake to participate in the triumphant discovery & exciting exploration of their remains. Most assuredly, the compelling sagas of these important vessels did not end when the waves of Lake Michigan washed over them.

Registration opens on June 4 & is required by June 14 at noon.
