Catala Oil Leak Update; SF Maritime Museum Job

Washington State environmental scientists are investigating reports of oil leaking from the wreck of the Catala, which resurfaced at Ocean Shores after storms in November, 2005. (See MHN Blog posts of Feb. 10, March 13, March 22 [with photos], and April 14.) A report in the Seattle Times says as much as 20,000 gallons of bunker oil could remain in the wreck, although investigators have found no severe leaks.

The San Francisco Maritime National Park Association is looking for a development director to oversee individual giving, donor cultivation, membership, special events, corporate giving, and grant writing.
