Our newest exhibit, examines the changes to the Muskegon Lake shoreline over the past 200 years. An Exhibit Opening Event will be held Tuesday, June 21 from 4 to 8 pm with formal comments at 5:30 pm.
Animation and maps in the exhibit show visitors how Muskegon Lake shrunk by 27% from the time of the lumbering era to the present day. A video shows the changes to the shoreline decade by decade and a hands-on station offers visitors an opportunity to create a souvenir log mark. This project has been made possible with support of the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation. The Shifting Shoreline Exhibit will be on display through May 2017.
