Museum Receives BlueFuture Grant

Mystic Seaport Museum is proud to announce that it is the recipient of a $2,000 grant from West Marine’s BlueFuture grant program. The program supports nonprofit organizations dedicated to getting more kids out on the water through boating, fishing, paddling, and marine science. The grants provide much-needed funds so that these valuable, community-based organizations can provide scholarships, purchase new equipment, maintain staff, add programs, and other needs.

“We are honored and grateful to West Marine for selecting us to receive this grant, which we will use to enhance and expand STEM and environmental education learning at our Sailing Center,” said Sarah Cahill, Director of Education at Mystic Seaport Museum.
