It is time to celebrate Spring Whale Watch Week on the Oregon coast from March 23 - March 31 at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center (2400 Hwy 101, Yachats), and at many other locations along the coast. Volunteers will be stationed at 24 designated locations from Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton to Harris Beach State Park in Brookings during the above dates from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Talk to knowledgeable volunteers at popular locations like the Sea Lion Caves Turnout, Cook's Chasm Turnout and Cape Perpetua all week long. Whales are an awesome sight to behold. Spring Whale Watch Week is part of the "Whale Watching Spoken Here" program of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
