The Sea is History – Tonight at the NC Maritime Museum

Eastern NC readers should come out to the North Carolina Maritime Museum this evening (July 23, 2010) for “The Sea is History” exhibition. This is a free event featuring lectures at the NC Maritime Museum, boat shuttles to the Duke Marine Lab, and a reception at the LEED Platinum Certified Marguerite Kent Repass Ocean Conservation Center.

Schedule after the jump.
