Dear Friends of SBMM,
On behalf of all the students learning about the Santa Barbara Channel, adults experiencing the First Order Fresnel Lens from Point Conception Lighthouse, and families exploring through Maritime on the Move, thank you for being part of the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum community.
Please support us today and provide more interactive education for the community. Because of you, we can all experience and celebrate 13,000 years of maritime culture and history through SBMM’s exhibits, educational programs, and lectures.
Past Board President George Writer and his wife Judy have stepped forward again to match the first $25,000 received through this appeal.
Thank you for considering a contribution.
Don Barthelmess, Board President Greg Gorga, Executive Director
