The Strait Science Series lectures are presented by Northwest Campus and Alaska Sea Grant to promote understanding between citizens of the Bering Strait region and the researchers who frequent the Seward Peninsula.
Thursday, July 7 | 6:30pm
In 1955, a US Navy patrol aircraft was shot down by Russian MiGs and crashed onto St. Lawerence Island, south of Gambell. Gambell Alaska Army Guardsmen rescued and sheltered the 11 crew members until they could return to the mainland. Come learn about and celebrate this legendary rescue by the Gambell community. Hear about the upcoming ceremony awarding the Alaska Heroism Medal to family members of the rescue crew and the last living rescuer.
Join via Zoom.
