JOIN US MAY 12TH FOR OUR MONTHLY MEETING VIA ZOOM TO LEARN ABOUT:
Marine invertebrates stole Juli Berwald’s heart on her first snorkel in the Red Sea during college. Hoping to study the ocean forever, she spent seven years building mathematical algorithms to interpret satellite imagery of the ocean, receiving her Ph.D. in ocean science. Her husband stole her heart next, and she drifted away from the ocean to Austin, Texas to be with him. Landlocked, she wrote textbooks and popular science articles for National Geographic Magazine, The New York Times, Redbook, and Wired.com before the story of jellyfish led her back to the sea. Her book, Spineless: the Science of Jellyfish and the Art of Growing a Backbone was published in 2017 and she’s currently working on a book about the future of coral.

What you are looking at is a diver documenting the wreckage of a Tuskegee Airman, 2nd Lt. Frank Moody's plane, lost since World War II. I am beyond proud to work with this dedicated group, Diving With a Purpose (DWP), that bring personal histories to life, usually that of the forgotten, enslaved and marginalized.

Our suggestion that a memorial be erected was met with enthusiasm and DWP started a Crowdrise campaign for covering the cost of the memorial and unveiling ceremony.
YOU CAN DONATE BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW (CLICK ANYWHERE ON THE PICTURE) TO GO TO THE WEBSITE TO DONATE.
The ceremony will be held on August 24, 2019 in Port Huron, Michigan.
For Black History Month, please consider sending your spare change, the cost of a latté, five bucks or your allowance to commemorate these heroes. The world could be a very different place today had it not been for The Tuskegee Airmen.
