Special Shipwreck Webcast Offers Interactive Opportunity

The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (LCMM) is expanding our popular Shipwrecks! program with a live webcast of the shipwrecked schooner Sarah Ellen on November 5, 2009 at 10:00am (EST). This FREE hour-long broadcast will take you deep under the cold dark waters of Lake Champlain where you’ll hear the tragic story of the schooner’s sinking in the winter of 1860. Then meet our nautical archaeologists who tell of her underwater discovery in 1989. See footage captured by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), over 300 feet below the surface. And, since this will be broadcast live, we’ll be able to take your questions via email! It’s a great program for all ages: families, teachers, students, entire classrooms, and life-long learners.

How does the webcast work? Simply visit our website (www.lcmm.org) shortly before 10:00am on November 5th where you’ll find a link to register for the program and watch the hour-long broadcast that begins at 10am. A high-speed Internet connection is necessary.

Going to miss the live broadcast? Don’t worry, we’ll be posting the recorded program on our website shortly after the initial broadcast.

This program is made possible by the generous support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the guidance of Jan Crocker, LLC. LCMM acknowledges and thanks Rachael Z. Miller and Shipwrecktour.com as founder and creator of the Shipwrecks! program.
