The Wisconsin Historical Society's Maritime Preservation Program is focused on documenting underwater cultural resources, monitoring their long-term preservation, and implementing a diverse public outreach program that fosters a preservation ethic and responsible visitation of maritime sites in Lakes Michigan and Superior.

Currently we are working on a grant funded by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program in which we are collecting detailed information on shallow shipwrecks along the Lake Michigan shoreline that can easily be seen from the surface. These will be integrated into the Lake Michigan State Water Trail (http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/lakemichigan/) as points of interest for paddlers, boaters, and beach goers. Additionally, we are creating a series of waterproof slates which can be used by divers, swimmers, boaters, and paddlers to garner a better understanding of what they may be seeing on the bottom.

For the last 28 years, the Maritime Archaeology program has focused primarily on divers as a user group and have done an extensive job of outreach and education to these visitors, but with the increase in paddling over the past few years, especially on Lake Michigan, and the creation of kayak launches in many port cities along the lakeshore, we have begun to reach out to this large (and growing) group of adventurers and showcase something unique that paddlers in many regions do not get to experience.
