The Western Flyer Foundation stirs curiosity by connecting art, literature, and science, drawing from the collaborative vision of John Steinbeck and Edward F. Ricketts. The Foundation’s educational programs will provide creative outreach opportunities both on land and aboard the Western Flyer. The Western Flyer will offer free, at-sea experiential learning for school children from Alaska to Mexico.
Chris Chase, Project Director, brings over thirty years of experience to the Western Flyer Foundation as a shipwright, project manager, operational director, and, for nearly twenty years, an owner of the Port Townsend Shipwrights. When the Western Flyer first arrived in Port Townsend, Chris was the lead shipwright and foreman of the Western Flyer restoration. What began as just another restoration for him soon turned into a deep passion and course-changing event.
