Massachusetts Marine Educators' Field Trip
The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts
Saturday November 13, 2004

The recently expanded Peabody Essex Museum is one of New England's largest museums and truly one of the North Shore's jewels. Founded by Salem sea captains in 1799, it houses unique collections of art and culture from around the globe, including the country's finest collection of maritime art and shipboard objects. On Saturday morning, November 13th, The PEM will host MME members and guests for a tour of its Maritime Art and History exhibits as well as the Art and Nature Center.

In the afternoon we will meet with folks from Salem Sound Coastwatch who will present their work and education outreach programs related to watershed issues and invasive species in Salem Sound. Afterwards, The SSCW people will take us for a walk along the Salem Waterfront (only a few blocks from PEM) focusing on the impact of invasive species in Salem Harbor.
