Moms and Calves are Here! Have you seen our whale moms and calves in the surf? Ever wonder why these 40’ creatures would be in waters so shallow? Or how a baby whale nurses? Did you know whales can be seen year-round from the Oregon shores?
We invite you Thursday, May 17th, at 2:00 p.m. to the Newport 60+ Activity Center for a presentation by Clint and Kathy Perry, who will share their love of whale watching, answering these questions and more. Bring your curiosity, enjoy a few whale artifacts, and hear the latest information about these gentle giants.
The couple’s expertise comes from years of volunteering with the Depoe Bay Whale Watching Center, Hatfield Marine Science Center, plus multiple naturalist certifications and trainings with whale experts.
Other upcoming educational presentations include “The Conflict Cycle” with Nancy Nash, Lincoln Community Dispute Resolution volunteer and trained mediator, on Thursday, May 24, 2:00 p.m. and “Sleep and Lifestyle for Wellness” with Michael Stout, RPSGT, CSE, certified clinical sleep educator, on Thursday, June 21, 2:00p.m. Please stop by the Newport 60+ Activity Center, 20 SE 2nd St, Newport, OR, or give us a call at 541-265-9617 to sign up for these opportunities.
