New video highlights lighthouse restoration

A new film by local videographer Nick James is about the restoration of the historic Port Clinton lighthouse. The video, which run just over five minutes in length, features interviews with Conservancy board members and volunteers, accompanied by footage of the restoration work and historical still photos.
