First Friday Watch Party: Visit a Shipwreck, Connect with Great Lakes History

September 2, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Shipwrecks, sailors’ stories, artifacts from bygone eras. The history of the Great Lakes is not only on display at NOAA’s current and proposed national marine sanctuaries on the Great Lakes, it’s there for visitors of all ages to engage with and enjoy.

Join WDET’s own Nick Austin (host of Soul Saturday, producer for Detroit Today) and Great Lakes Now’s Sandra Svoboda to learn more about visiting these unique places, whether you’re a tourist on land or a diver in the water.

View a new video from WPBS-TV in Watertown, New York about Lake Ontario’s proposed sanctuary, and ask questions (and get answers) about the sanctuaries and their shipwrecks from NOAA experts.


  • Ellen Brody, Great Lakes Regional Coordinator, NOAA’s Office of the National Marine Sanctuaries
  • Stephanie Gandulla, Resource Protection Coordinator, Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary
  • David White, Recreation Specialist, New York Sea Grant
