Whale Trail Sign Dedication and Orca Celebration
Free, family-friendly event (including face painting) held at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park
The Whale Trail and Washington Environmental Council and the City of Shoreline announce “Orca Celebration and Whale Trail Sign Dedication” to promote awareness and stewardship of endangered southern resident orcas.
The free, family-friendly event will take place Friday June 21 Richmond Beach Saltwater Park located in the City of Shoreline. A new interpretive panel focused on marine mammals will be unveiled and dedicated. Richmond Beach is one of more than 100 sites along The Whale Trail, a network of marine mammal viewing locations that spans from California to British Columbia.
The dedication and orca celebration, including free refreshments, cake and kids activities, is one of dozens of Orca Action Month events during the month of June (www.orcamonth.com).
“It’s not too late to save the southern residents—yet,” adds Donna Sandstrom, Executive Director of Whale Trail and Orca Recovery Task Force member. “The threats that have brought these beloved and iconic pods to the edge of extinction are all human-caused: loss of prey, noise and disturbance from vessels, and toxic accumulations. We each and all have a role to play in their recovery.”
Free community event and celebration with kids activities, and refreshments.
