Grays Harbor Historical Seaport is an amazing 501 (c)(3) educational non-profit based out of Aberdeen, Washington. They offer educational, vocational, recreational and ambassadorial activities and experiences which promote and preserve the maritime history of Grays Harbor, the Pacific Northwest and our nation while serving the needs of the community.

Bringing maritime history to life is just one of the specialties aboard two of their tall ships. They offer many different programs through which they provide hands-on opportunities (both fun and educational) with a focus on teamwork and empowerment. Here are just a few of some great ways to explore our shared human history and daily connections to the world’s oceans through their programs:

You’re probably more familiar with at least one aspect of their programs than you might think; one of their tall ships, the Lady Washington, was used in the “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” movie! You may even remember her as the HMS Interceptor.

For more information about their amazing programs, please visit their website or Facebook page!

To make jewelry purchases to support their programs, go to Butterfly Sundries’ Etsy shop! You can also donate to them, directly, via their website here.

 

 

 

 

 

Their inspired mini-line:

For Grays Harbor Historical Seaport I’ve created the Sirens and Sailors Collection, designs inspired by nautical myths, sailors’ tools (including knots and maps, among others) and “Golden Age of Pirates” (including some designs which use genuine antique coins)! Each item from the Sirens and Sailors Collection sends 10% of the sale profits to support the programming of GHHS (through May 2015).

This brand new Butterfly Sundries original design, part of the Sirens and Sailors Collection, was inspired by old nautical maps!

    1. I’m glad you like the designs Roxie; it truly is my pleasure to bring all the attention I can to the fantastic programs of GHHSA! I know I felt so inspired the first time I had the opportunity to see the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain “up close” during Maritime Fest in Tacoma and I’m excited about using my original jewelry designs to help people connect with (and support) the amazing programs all of you offer. 🙂 Thank you for all the hard work you contribute to making the GHHSA’s programs possible!
