Wisconsin Shipwreck Coast National Marine Sanctuary with Russ Green
In June 2021 NOAA announced the designation of the 962-square-mile Wisconsin Shipwreck Coast National Marine Sanctuary spanning Lake Michigan’s shoreline from Port Washington to Kewaunee. It will protect 36 shipwrecks that possess exceptional historic, archaeological, and recreational value. Historical research suggests that nearly 60 shipwrecks are yet to be discovered in the sanctuary. Join NOAA’s regional manager, Russ Green, for a brief overview of the sanctuary and discussion of ongoing projects both on and off the water.
