Museum Lecture: "Preserving Plum Island for Future Generations: The Latest News"
Chris Cryder, Special Projects Coordinator for Save the Sound, will present
a "virtual tour" of Plum Island featuring Robert Lorenz's photographs. His
talk will update the information that he provided last August at the Community
Center. Plum Island, home to the nation's foreign animal disease center, as well
as several endangered species and unique habitats, may soon be sold to the
highest bidder. Numerous organizations and concerned citizens are fighting to
protect this amazing island from development. Join us to learn both the
fascinating history of Plum Island and the latest news about our neighboring
Place: The Museum, 2nd Floor.
