Living Lands & Waters founder Chad Pregracke provided the materials for this unique exhibit featuring bottles he and his teams have found over the years as they work to clean up the country’s waterways.
What a fun exhibit! From tell-me-you’ve-found-me to life stories and drawings, the Message in a Bottle Collection showcases a variety of the adventures and notes that have traveled along our famous rivers.
There is a huge map on the wall showing where each highlighted bottle was found. Some of the most interesting have more details provided. The display boxes were made from salvaged river boards.
There are even some tips about sending your own “message in a bottle” such as weighing it down a bit so it doesn’t immediately float to the river’s edge.
Don’t miss this exhibit! Visit by September 17.
Note: The Figge is free to visitors through Labor Day weekend.
