Participants will learn about shipwrecks, Chumash culture and the history of oil in the Channel

Ever wanted to know more about shipwrecks, marine biology, Chumash culture or the history of oil in the Santa Barbara Channel? Now is your chance.

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 13, the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is hosting a 10-week docent training course.

Each Tuesday and Wednesday, after chatting over coffee and pastries at 9 a.m., the group will listen to a lecture or talk from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. by a local expert in their respective field.

After completing the course, participants will give regular guided tours of the museum, 113 Harbor Way, Suite 190 in Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
