The Spring 2014 NEERS meeting will be held in historic Salem,
Massachusetts, at the Salem Waterfront Hotel at Pickering Wharf on Salem Harbor.
Historically, Salem was one of the wealthiest and most important seaports in the country.
The first European settlers arrived in the early 1600s to discover abundant natural
resources. Salem Sound and associated rivers were described as teeming with estuarine
and anadromous fish, including such species as sturgeon, salmon, halibut, shad, river
herring, cod and haddock (to name a few). Although Salem Sound marine resources have
clearly changed since those early days, this estuary still inspires with its magic of
beautiful rocky islands, intertidal flats, kelp beds, eelgrass meadows, and salt marshes.
The City of Salem itself is a great place to visit. The Salem Waterfront Hotel is located just steps away from many famed historic sites including Hawthorne's House of the Seven Gables and Derby Wharf as well as the beautiful and intriguing collections of maritime art and history found at the Peabody Essex Museum. The Visitor Center of the Salem Maritime National Historic Site is just across the street, as are many houses that date back to colonial times. If you want to have your palm read, gaze into a crystal ball, visit a wax museum, or ride on an authentic merry-go-round, there are plenty of opportunities for that too.
