The Custom House is broadening its offerings in the new year.
Our next exhibition, featuring photographs by
the biodiversity of nearby Great Gull Island.
You remember Great Gull -- that's where we've volunteered in past years to help with the tern nest & egg count.
Matthew, who organizes the tern project for the American Museum of Natural History, will be showing pictures of birds and other wildlife photographed while he was staying out on the island.
The exhibition opens on
Saturday, January 25
This year, we also will be celebrating the
100th anniversary of women gaining the right to VOTE!
, above left,
kicked off our celebration with a history of women lighthouse keepers. She presented her talk to visitors from throughout the northeast.
We'll have more programs highlighting both
our local natural environment
and celebrating the
Women's Vote Centennial
in the months to come.
