“Schooners and Maine’s Logging Industry” with Jeana Ganskop, Penobscot Marine Museum

Tuesday, April 30 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Join Penobscot Marine Museum Education Director Jeana Ganskop for an introduction to the 19th-century logging industry in Maine and the schooners and other sailing vessels that transported Maine lumber along the coast and around the world. The talk will trace the close relationship between lumber and water, map the destinations of lumber from Maine, and share some stories of individual lumber schooners. This presentation will draw from PMM’s rich artifact, print, and photo collections. This talk will take place on Tuesday, April 30 at 6:30 PM and complete this year’s Maritime Month series.

This is a hybrid program and will take place in the Picker Room as well as on Zoom. To attend virtually, register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_uTpclQDFRfKxdu3GUxifJA
