    Name: Do you know what's in your backyard? Lake Michigan Shipwrecks and Discoveries
    Date: February 3, 2018
    Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CST
    Event Description:
    Great Lakes are known as the inland seas with powerful storms reaching up to hurricane force winds and ships disappearing beneath the waves. The Great Lakes used to resemble a busy highway with ships crossing them; transporting natural resources, grain, cargo, and people. At times ships collided and sank. Join Capt. Jitka Hanakova as she takes you back in time from when the first ever ship, the Le Griffon, crossed the Great Lakes to discovering missing schooners, steamships, freighters, and even airplanes. You will find out how these ships sank and what they look like on the bottom of the lakes now - some still containing precious cargo of Christmas trees, Nash automobiles, and even a safe with gold coins.
