“We’ve grown steadily from a simple mission of building a tall ship to an organization that offers education programs to tens of thousands of young people and adults a year in three states and British Columbia,” says GHHSA Executive Director Les Bolton. “We’re very excited about our next 25 years, including the establishment of Seaport Landing as our new home port and tall ship maintenance facility.”
Seaport Landing is a mixed-use public waterfront facility planned for South Aberdeen just south of the Chehalis River Bridge.
