She emerged with the lower body of a fish and upper body of a human. Ever since, mermaids and mermen have captivated the imaginations of people and cultures around the world.

    The Mystery of the Marie Presentation by Teresa Newton-Terres, PMP®

    Nearly 60 years ago, on June 7, 1960, the Marie, a converted WWII Landing craft set out at sunrise from Santa Barbara Harbor with seven men working on a covert underwater Raytheon-related project…and was never seen again. Eventually, four victims’ bodies were recovered, but three disappeared along with the Marie’s life boat—the captain, a scientist, and an engineer (Diego “Jim” Terres, Jr). Only 2 years old when her father disappeared, Teresa Newton-Terres decided to investigate the story and try to solve the mystery of the Marie’s disappearance.

    Hans Hass: The Man Who Discovered the Sea Film Screening and Lecture by Leslie Leaney

    Known by divers internationally as the Pioneer of the Pioneers, Hans Hass started his diving career in the 1930s. He was the first free-swimming film maker to film and photograph sharks, manta rays, and whales in their natural environment. A prolific writer, Hass had published six books on diving by 1950. He left the underwater world in 1960 and was largely forgotten by the diving industry. Hans met Santa Barbara-based diving historian Leslie Leaney in 1997 and they formed a partnership that led to a revival of interest in Hans’ pioneering career.

    Keepers of the Light: The History of the Point Conception Lighthouse Reading and discussion with local author, Willard Thompson

    Point Conception, considered sacred ground by the Chumash, is the headland where California’s coast goes from a north-south orientation to east-west, making a natural division between Southern and Northern California. Ever since the Gold Rush Days, the Point Conception Lighthouse has guarded the treacherous Pacific waters where the Santa Barbara Channel and Pacific Ocean meet on the western edge of Santa Barbara County. Such a dangerous place for mariners, Point Conception was dubbed The Cape Horn of California.

    Unmanned Tech for Ocean Protection: Lecture by CDR Matthew Pickett, NOAA (Ret) and President, Oceans Unmanned

    According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), “our oceans are filled with items that do not belong there, [such as] consumer plastics, metals, rubber, paper, textiles…and other lost or discarded items…making marine debris one of the most widespread pollution problems facing the world’s oceans and waterways.” Oceans Unmanned is developing new techniques to survey for marine debris along rugged coastlines and remote beaches using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) —more commonly called drones—and immersive visualization software for greater effectiveness and safety.
