CONSERVATION IN ACTION
Conservation is a constant activity at Battleship Cove. Our staff and volunteers work constantly to help preserve, repair, restore and interpret our world class collection of ships
At present there is a team working on the USS
Joseph P. Kennedy Jr.
, in various compartments of the ship and on the USS
especially on the Bridge areas. Volunteers have now started painting the Hiddensee and surveying her interior. The USS
Living History Group
are also helping to restore and present their historic office space on the battleship and will soon start work on a 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun. The submarine is cosseted by retired submariners on special weekends. So you can see that there’s a lot going on.
Want to help? You can either sign up as a volunteer by contacting our curator on 1-508-678 1100, ext 108, or donate to help fund these projects by calling the Executive Director on 1-508-678-1100, ext 103.
These pages are under construction but will show you some of those projects that our dedicated teams are working on as a for of picture diary. Call in and join in anytime!
