Events

"Fourth Thursdays: Our History" program at 7 pm Thursday, May 24 will be a presentation by Phyllis Shoemaker, who will review how UAF’s Institute of Marine Science grew to be the important institution it is today. All the way from R/V Alpha Helix to R/V Sikuliaq, and the establishment of the Seward Marine Center, the Institute of Marine Science has played an important role in Seward's history. The program in the Community Room of the Seward Community Library Museum is free and open to the public.
