Burlington Wood Street Fair and History Sails

IMG_7495 compressed

We kick off our fall season in historic Burlington, NJ along the beautiful Delaware River.  

The City of Burlington and the surrounding area is steeped in early American history.  We dedicate these sails to learning about this local history in addition to that which the 1928 Delaware Bay Oyster Schooner AJ Meerwald carries with her wherever she travels.

Local natives to the area, historians, retired educators, long-time volunteers of the Bayshore Center at Bivalve and innkeepers of the Whitebriar Bed & Breakfast in Edgewater Park, Bill & Carole Moore, will be on board to share their vast knowledge of the surrounding area, both past and present.

The ship will be docked at the oldest continuously operating boat club on the Delaware River, the Oneida Boat Club (founded 1873).

Philly Science Festival Special:  “Plastics at Sea”

Emilee (Ems) Monson was a crew member of the 2012 Plastics at SEA North Pacific Expedition, a scientific research voyage conducted by Sea Education Association (SEA) dedicated to the study of the effects of plastic marine debris in the ocean ecosystem.

This was the first scientific research study of the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ to measure the concentration of plastic in the gyre.  Ems will talk about some of the research they conducted, their findings, and highlights of the adventures of sailing a tall ship in the Pacific Ocean.  Click here to read more about the expedition.

If you are interested in seeing a sample of this plastic marine debris first-hand and learning what this group of scientists observed during their expedition, join Ems and the rest of the Schooner AJ Meerwald crew for a sail from Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia on April 26.
