One of just a handful U.S. Coast Guard certified lampists, Kurt Fosburg has worked with Fresnel lenses in lighthouses around the world.

As part of his visit to move and install a third order Fresnel lens in CBMM’s new Welcome Center, Fosburg will give a public talk to share stories of his work as a lampist and the process of how he became an expert in this specialized field.

This talk is graciously sponsored by Choptank Electric Cooperative.
