About The Glacier Society ...

The Glacier Society is a non-profit 501-(c)3 Educational Foundation dedicated to the restoration and operation of the USS/USCGC Glacier in honor of all who served in the exploration of the North and South Poles.

In addition to her record-breaking 39 Arctic and Antarctic deployments, she is one of only a few United States ships to serve under the colors of both the US Navy and the US Coast Guard.

Mission Statement

Scientific Goals
Once Glacier has been restored, she will be the ideal scientific / oceanographic platform on which to conduct various levels of environmental research. She will be involved with today's major polar research centers, studying oceanographic diversities and biological samples from polar waters.

Educational Goals
Glacier will operate as a certified school ship. Hands-on training will be provided for all levels from K-12 through post-graduate.

Honoring Those Who Have Served Our Country
The Glacier exemplifies the best of America in action: military service personnel, scientists, and citizens working together with the government for a common good. She will serve as a major tourist attraction to Bridgeport, CT. While in port, she will house a museum honoring all men and women who have explored vast regions of the world and served for their country.
