Local historian Jim Geraghty will lead the Juneau-Douglas City Museum's Coffee & Collections series on Saturday, Oct. 16, at 10:30 a.m. with "The Story of the Revenue Cutter Wayanda." Geraghty will present accounts from the Wayanda's 1868 voyage to investigate the uncharted waters of what is now the Gastineau Channel. The presentation will also highlight the lives of some of the Wayanda's crew who were among the first to successfully chart the Channel.

Coffee & Collections is a monthly presentation series offered October through April that explores Juneau's history, culture and natural environment. All Coffee & Collections presentations are held at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, located at the corner of 4th and Main St. Coffee for this series is provided by Heritage Coffee Company.
