Lake Champlain Maritime Museum at Basin Harbor, Inc. (Vergennes, VT 05491-9192)
Christopher Hale (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Navigating for the Future

Retention of four staff to maintain the institution’s collection and site during closure and create online programming.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum cannot safely open to the public as scheduled in 2020. This means that thousands of students and visitors will not experience the hands-on connection to our region’s history and archeology that results from visiting our site and participating in experiential workshops and classes. Navigating for the Future will support activities to ensure that Lake Champlain Maritime Museum will continue to serve our mission and be here for our community during and after this crisis. Staff will continue to maintain our fleet of historic boats, our 3-acre campus, our exhibits, and our collections, even while we cannot welcome in-person visitors. Staff will also learn new safety procedures so that we can interact with the public while keeping our community and our staff healthy and safe. While we are closed to the public, the staff will continue to share new content and resources with our online audiences.
