The Center for Wooden Boats in South Lake Union focuses on traditional boat education.

Historic Seattle will present a program titled “Seattle's Maritime Heritage: The Center for Wooden Boats” from 6 to 8 p.m. May 20 at the center at 1010 Valley St.

Participants will learn about the center's history and its continued focus on traditional boat education for people of all ages, along with the growing appreciation for maritime heritage in Seattle and the efforts to preserve this history. There will be a reception with wine, beer and snacks.

According to the event announcement, Dick and Colleen Wagner founded the center after running a bustling small-boat rental business from their historic floating home under the Aurora Bridge. Dick Wagner designed the two original floating buildings to accommodate the center and he nominated the Wagner family's 1909 floating home to the National Register of Historic Places.

Cost is $40, or $30 for members. Register at https://tinyurl.com/yj6e6zdy/.
