James Charlet a local historian also known as "Keeper James," will present the history of the UNITED STATES LIFE-SAVING SERVICE which was founded in 1871. During its forty-four year history, over 176,000 lives were saved by these heroes! Dramatic stories of courageous rescues will be a highlight of the program. The Lifesaving Museum is nearby.
In Wanchese we will visit the COASTAL STUDIES INSTITUTE, a branch of UNC whose research and education programs center around issues such as water quality, fisheries, renewable energy, maritime heritage, and coastal economics. Here we will enjoy a lecture and tour of the facility which has won international awards in architecture.
