Join the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation for a unique Blue Beacon event celebrating the cultural heritage of shipwrecks in our national marine sanctuaries through the story of the Christmas Tree Ship… and home baked cookies!

Pour your hot cocoa and drop by their Facebook page on Saturday, December 12th as they tell the story of the Rouse Simmons – better known as the Christmas Tree Ship of Lake Michigan – with the help of friends at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum and the Christmas Tree Ship Committee. They’ll also be joined by baker Kimberly Loy, who will lead the audience in baking special Christmas Tree Ship-themed cookies right from home!
