Phragmites, Climate Change, and Vacuum Cleaners: Behind the Scenes at a National Park
August 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
Salem Maritime National Historic Site hosts a Report Out presentation by the park’s Resource Management staff. The park’s Resource Management division oversees the protection and preservation of the natural and cultural resources at both Salem Maritime and Saugus Iron Works National Historic Sites. This includes the extensive museum and archives collections, active conservation of the native plants and environment, and collaboration with the larger preservation community working to protect the history that make Salem and Saugus such special places.
Presentations will include efforts to develop a new monitoring strategy to study climate change impacts to Derby Wharf in Salem, continuing long-term work to remove invasive plants and nuisance animals from Saugus Iron Works, exciting research to relocate buildings removed from the Salem Maritime site in the 1930s, efforts to make the Salem Maritime archives more accessible, and an overview of how we continue to care for the historic objects in our collection and museums.
Event is free and open to the public, and takes place on the second floor of St. Joseph Hall at 160 Derby Street.
