Town of Webb Historical Association director Kate Lewis has lined up a diverse roster for this summer’s talks. The popular series will feature Mike Schreppel on Thursday, July 18 leading a presentation about Diving the Chain.

July 18 “Diving the Chain” talk by Mike Schreppel

A former Navy diver, Mike began diving the Fulton Chain to seek out invasive species for the Fulton Chain of Lakes Association. Underwater, along with fish and plant life, he found a treasure trove of interesting objects, some of them historical in nature. Stunning photos of life under the surface will highlight his talk, as well as information on the persistent varieties of foreign species in the Chain.

The Local History Series is free and open to the public.
