Seaport Landing in South Aberdeen is again looking for volunteers on Saturdays to help clean up the home port of the tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain. The first one is scheduled for March 1.
The Lady Washington turns 25 on March 7, and these cleanups are to help prepare the former Weyerhaeuser sawmill site, where the tall ship organization is now based, for the celebrations this summer.
The Historical Seaport is calling the work effort the “Salty Saturday” Project Parties. They are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday through May to prepare for the ships’ return June 5.
Projects are flexible and can accommodate individuals, groups or organizations.
Minors over 12 are welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Inside and outside projects are available. A Seaport Landing staff member will help volunteers find the right fit. Volunteers should dress warmly, even for indoor projects.
Those interested in gardening and landscaping are asked to bring their own garden tools.
Contact Randy Beerbower, community outreach lead, 360-532-8611, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seaport Landing is located at 500 N. Custer St., the former Weyerhaeuser property.
