The coming of winter to Cape Perpetua Scenic Area means massive visitors are not far behind, as thousands of Gray whales make their way south to the warm waters of Mexico.
This Saturday, Dec. 30, retired Chief park ranger Michael Noack will give a free presentation entitled “Experiencing Gray Whales,” aimed at getting people familiar with gray whales and ways to locate them.
The presentation will begin at 11:30 am in the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, located three miles south of Yachats.
After the program, Noak will be available to discuss whale watch techniques that have worked for him.
Attending the presentation is free, but a day-use fee or recreation pass is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area.
The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center is open from 10 am to 4 pm daily except Monday, Jan. 1. For more information, call 541-547-3289.
