Harbor WildWatch’s Cocktails & Fishtales: Marine Debris @ Gig Harbor Taproom
Feb 20 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Harbor WildWatch's Cocktails & Fishtales: Marine Debris @ Gig Harbor Taproom | Gig Harbor | Washington | United States

Harbor WildWatch’s first science-social of the season will welcome Ken Campbell, Director of The Ikkatsu Project, to discuss marine debris in the wilds of Alaska (and at home in the Puget Sound). Formed in 2012, The Ikkatsu Project seeks to remediate marine debris through coastal surveying and exploration. They recently traveled to the Cape Decision Lighthouse in southeast Alaska to survey the surrounding beaches and collect water samples for microplastic research. The lighthouse is located in one of the more remote regions of the Alaskan panhandle at the southern tip of Kuiu (south of Sitka and west of Wrangell). With this remote location in mind, the team was interested in learning if – and how – the effects of plastics have impacted this coastline.

During his presentation at Gig Harbor Taproom, Ken will share a trailer for “Decision” – an in-progress film about this trip – as well as a short film about The Ikkatsu Project and marine debris. He will also be joined by several special guests who worked with The Ikkatsu Project at Cape Decision Lighthouse.

Cocktails & Fishtales is a science-social series for ages 21 and over. Held once a month, each event features a speaker on an ecological topic at either Gig Harbor Taproom (3155 Harborview Drive) or Ocean5 (5268 Point Fosdick Drive NW). These programs are an opportunity to enjoy an evening out in Gig Harbor while engaging with like-minded eco-enthusiasts in a lively and social learning experience. Harbor WildWatch Steward Club members have free admission; guest admission is a suggested donation of $5/person at the door.

Doors open at 5:30pm; presentation is from 6-7pm with time for a short Q&A after.

“The Lost Footage” of the 1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse @ Harbor History Museum
Feb 26 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
"The Lost Footage" of the 1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse @ Harbor History Museum | Gig Harbor | Washington | United States

Harbor History Museum is eager to share unreleased footage documenting the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge on November 7, 1940. Taken by Arthur T. Leach ­– a toll both operator at the time — “The Lost Footage” is the only known video of the collapse as seen from the West side, or Gig Harbor side, of the Tacoma Narrows.

“As a historian, I am naturally skeptical until I am able to confirm details. I am excited to say that I have been able to verify that Mr. Leach was noted as a toll booth operator at the time and that this footage is a rare find,” says Harbor History Museum Director Stephanie Lile. “One of the things that makes this footage so special is that this was the personal view of somebody who actually worked on the bridge. The clip we always see is shot from the Tacoma side, so this is a whole different view.”

Along with a Director Talk, Harbor History Museum plans to debut “The Lost Footage” on February 12th, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. as part of the Museum’s Humanities in the Harbor series. Those in attendance will be the first to glimpse the unseen 7:30 minute video of Galloping Gertie’s collapse and learn more about Arthur Leach, the research to verify the footage, and what happened that fateful November day.

Admission to Humanities in the Harbor is $5, but free for Harbor History Museum members. Tickets may be Purchased Online or at the front desk of the Museum. Members are encouraged to RSVP as seating is limited. RSVPS can be made by emailing Zachary Sokolik, Marketing & Development, at marketing@harborhistorymuseum.org or by phone at 253.858.6722.
