This fall, join guest speakers at Cape Perpetua for free educational presentations along with the hiking, tidepooling, and exploring. Presentations will be held every Saturday from Nov. 3 to Dec. 29 and will include a special focus on wildlife, geology, landscapes, and threatened species along with other unique topics.

On Dec. 23 at 1 p.m., learn about the pre-European inhabitants of the Cape Perpetua area from Cape Perpetua volunteers Dick Mason (also a CoastWatcher). Dick will also take you on a quick and entertaining tour of world history that occurred while the Alsea were enjoying their evening seaweed and mussel dinners at Cape Perpetua. Meet at the Cape Perpetua Vistor Center (2400 Hwy 101, abou three miles south of Yachats). 

All events are free and open to the public, but a Northwest Forest Pass, Oregon Coast Passport, Federal Recreation Pass or $5 day-use fee is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and at many Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area recreation sites. For more information on any of these events, contact the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center at 541-547-3289.
