Join Heather Pouliot Kisilywicz, new Executive Director of the South County Museum, when she talks about the history of Point Judith’s commercial fishing “Stories of the South County Fishermen” lecture on February 28th for the On Pettaquamscutt lecture series. The many changes in the salinity, available catch, and regulations have contributed to the rise and fall of Point Judith’s position as the second-largest commercial fishing port on the East Coast.
Attend for a sneak peek of the upcoming major exhibit starting in May 2021 and the most dangerous jobs in the nation – commercial fishing – provides the food on your plate.
The presentation starts at 1:00 p.m. Register required to receive the Zoom link. Seats are limited and have filled up in the past so don’t delay!
