Jul 19, 2014

Begin with a walking history tour of Burlington's waterfront and learn about its illustrious and bustling past. Historian and educator Elisa Nelson will guide you through different areas of the waterfront, while highlighting points of interest and answering any questions you may have. When your walking tour concludes, you will board the Melosira, UVM's research vessel, and head out for a shipwreck tour using a remotely operated vehicle. The crew will take you to see two of Burlington Harbor's shipwrecks, and tell you the stories of these wonderfully preserved wrecks, all without ever having to get wet! Bring sun protection.
