Ambassadors at Cape Perpetua

The Cape Perpetua Collaborative hosts the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve Ambassador Program at Smelt Sands State Park along the historic 804 trail in Yachats this summer. The program connects visitors to local volunteers with a passion for spreading awareness and promoting stewardship.

Trained volunteers will be available to answer questions, promote tidepool and beach etiquette and safety, and enhance awareness of local resources and history. A stroll along the historic and scenic 804 trail in Yachats highlights some of Oregon’s rich and biodiverse coastline. Walking along this trail visitors may see migratory birds, endangered marbled murrelets, whales, sea lions or look across the way to the trees of the immense coastal rainforest.

WHEN: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through September 4 from 9am-3pm.

WHERE: Smelt Sands State Park 

SCHEDULE 9am-3pm on the following days:

August 12-14
