Join the Whale Watching Spoken Here volunteers (2011)


We’re gearing up for whale watching on the Oregon Coast, and we need your help.  We need volunteers to help visitors see and learn about migrating Gray whales. Register for one of these training sessions:

  • Dec. 10, 2011 at the Hatfield Marine Science Center, Newport;
  • Jan. 21, 2012 at Bullards Beach State Park, Bandon;
  • Feb. 11, 2012 at Nehalem Bay State Park, Nehalem.

Volunteers need to attend at least one training session. Listen to great speakers, and take home a whale watching reference manual and a waterproof field guide “Marine Mammals of the North Pacific.”  The registration is free if you pre-register and volunteer at least two days during a watch week. Winter  Watch Week is Dec. 26-31 and Spring Watch Week is March 24-31, 2012.

See the Call for Volunteers training agenda and registration packet for more information.
