Brown Bag Gam: The Story Behind ‘Echo’ the Whale

315 Front Street, Beaufort, NC
(252) 728-7317

12 – 1 pm

Pack a lunch for the Brown Bag Gam during your lunch hour and join Museum Natural Science Curator Keith Rittmaster for an informal discussion about Echo (the 33.5-foot long sperm whale skeleton at the Museum) and his heart. When the adolescent male whale came ashore at Cape Lookout in 2004, his bones and heart were preserved for study and display. During the process, his heart was sent to the University of Tennessee for plastination. Gam is defined as a friendly conversation between whalers or to visit with another ship while at sea. Free Admission. 252.728.7317. North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, 315 Front Street, Beaufort 28516. www.ncmaritimemuseums.com.
