SRC Chief, Dave Conlin, on the prop of the Chisolm, Isle Royale, National Park.
In 1980, the Submerged Cultural Resources Unit (known as SCRU) was formed and staffed by underwater archeologists and photographers to provide the expertise required by managers of national parks with submerged lands.
Renamed the Submerged Resources Center in 1999 to include natural resources, the core mission of the program has remained the same: the Submerged Resources Center supports stewardship for the protection, preservation, public access and interpretation of submerged resources.
