CoastWatchers Betty Bahn and Sally Lockyear will lead a botanical walk along the Giant Spruce Trail at Cape Perpetua on Saturday, April 22, 9-11 a.m.  The event is sponsored by the Yaquina Birders & Naturalists.

Wildflowers will be blooming along the Giant Spruce Trail, and birds will be singing from the trees as they prepare for the nesting season. The trail to the Giant Spruce, an Oregon Heritage Tree, is about two miles round-trip and is rated by the Forest Service as being of "moderate" difficulty. During this stroll, Betty and Sally will identify and talk about the native flowers, shrubs and trees and listen for songbirds.

Wear clothes for variable weather. Meet on the deck outside of the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center (about three miles south of Yachats) by 9 a.m. The guided walk is free and open to the public.  However, a pass or $5 daily fee is required to park at the Visitor Center.
