The Tarr and Wonson Paint Factory
in Gloucester, Massachusetts is no longer an abandoned, polluted and decaying structure on the Gloucester waterfront. After spending over $1.5 million on pollution remediation and restoration efforts Ocean Alliance moved its offices into one of the brick buildings in the spring of 2013. Construction starts on the remaining two brick buildings (and the chimney) in the spring of 2014. To be a functional oceanographic research and education center, we need to have docks and a laboratory on site. We have raised over $100,000 of the $450,000 we need to complete this work so while this is an ambitious goal for 2014, we feel that it is critically important to get this site working as soon as possible. Please remember that no donation is too small.
