Faculty at UConn Avery Point along with public and private entities are seeking to create a “Maritime Connecticut Corridor” by integrating resources related to Connecticut’s maritime history, cultures, economy and scientific endeavors.  The Corridor will have an on-line presence that will enable users to understand how individuals and communities have worked on, in, and around Connecticut’s coasts and rivers in the past and present and allow users to interact with Connecticut’s rich maritime heritage in real-time and on location.  The project which is being launched now, will be developed during the course of several workshops to be held later this year, focusing on different themes including heritage and culture; geography and economics; and sustainable seafood and science, among other potential ideas. We welcome your ideas and input to this process. Please consider completing this questionnaire or taking the online survey to let us know you interest in this:  http://s.uconn.edu/ctm
