Report Details

a beautiful day, but a very chilly NW wind.a 'bridge' has been installed at Ecola Outfall area. Its a step in the right direction. But the sign still says ' avoid prolonged contact', we would like to see the 'prolonged' part eliminated.The bridge is just a small step , finding the source of the contamination still needs to be the major focus.the e-coli count on Monday, Feb. 6 was 686.7. Thats still about 4 times the 'safe' level.we hope this will get resolved before the start of the tourist season. President's weekend is also a concern.

Mile 313

Tolovana Park north, Haystack Rock

April 25, 2024

Overall, Haystack Rock is a treasure trove of marine biological diversity, from invertebrates and pelagic birds to marine mammals, with an active education program for curious beach visitors. The best tidepool invertebrate diversity today was observed at the south end of Haystack Rock in the area often referred to as "The Needles. As I was tidepooling, I heard multiple beach visitors asking about sea slugs and how to locate nudibranchs.
