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 island.
