The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center near Yachats will mark World Migratory Bird Day this Saturday, May 12, with a BioBlitz survey aimed at cataloging migratory bird species in the Cape Perpetua region.
After an hour of observations around the center, participants will be encouraged to follow experts to one of three other locations in the Cape Perpetua region to continue the survey.
This free citizen science program runs from 10 am to 1 pm and is open to all. Participants should bring a raincoat, binoculars, water and snacks.
The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center is located three miles south of Yachats on Highway 101.
On Friday, May 11, the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area will host a conservation presentation from Audubon Sanctuary Manager Paul Englemeyer followed by a cleanup at Stonefield Beach State Park.
Participants should meet in the stone shelter at the top of Cape Perpetua Scenic Overlook and bring a bucket. The talk will begin at 11 am, followed by a short break for lunch and then the beach clean from 12:30 to 3 pm.
