February 2, 2007 — Silver Spring, Maryland
NOAA Heritage Week 2007 got off with a bang with Treasures of NOAA’s Ark: Journey Through Time. The NOAA’s Ark exhibit, which officially opened Monday, February 5, 2007, showcases historical resources that recall the agency’s proud history and legacy of service.
On Friday, February 2, 2007, Fox 5 News in the Morning got a sneak peek of the exhibit. Holly Morris, who highlights local activities on Fox 5 Morning News, visited the exhibit in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Holly and other guests who visit the exhibit will travel through 200 years of NOAA science, service, and stewardship. This special NOAA Heritage Week/NOAA 200th Celebration event and exhibit will transport employees, families, schools, and other guests back to the early days of the Coast Survey, the U.S. Weather Bureau, and the U.S. Commission of Fish and Fisheries, and propel them forward to the NOAA of today.
You’ll be wowed by newly discovered and restored artifacts from NOAA’s past, inspired by the breakthroughs of NOAA’s professional ancestors, and immersed in the many environments in which NOAA operates from sea to space.
The exhibit is free and open to the public, running from February 5 – 14, 2007, in the NOAA Science Center, 1301 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, Maryland. Additional information is available on the Treasures of NOAA’s Ark Web site.
