Whale Watching at Ecola State Park December 27-31, 2014

How about mixing a little Goonies film site visit in with Whale Watching?

Ecola State Park is one of the 24 designated whale watching sites on Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) Whale Watch Week Dec. 27-31 along the coast.

Trained volunteers from the Whale Watching Spoken Here program will be stationed at the sites 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on those days to help visitors spot gray whales heading south.

Visitors will also learn about whale migration and feeding habits. A map of the watch sites is available online at whalespoken.org.

Local Scouts Fill and Deliver Food Boxes Before Christmas

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Members of Pack 540 met at the Cannon Beach American Legion at 8am on December 23rd. They were tasked with filling and delivering food boxes with the Cannon Beach American Legion and Cannon Beach Fire Department.

They started by helping the Legion finish filling the boxes that contained canned food (some of which those scout collected during Scouting For Food earlier in the month) bread, vegetables, candy, turkeys, bacon, eggs and milk. The filled boxes were loaded onto a UHaul and driven to low income neighborhoods to be deliverd to families who needed them.

While delivering boxes they were followed by Erik Bengel for an article in the Cannon Beach Gazette. http://www.dailyastorian.com/CBG/news/20141223/cannon-beach-volunteers-help-low-income-folks-have-a-merry-christmas

Their work wasn’t quite done yet.  As soon as they finished they headed to the Seaside Fire Department. Once there they loaed up the close to 700lbs of food collected for Scouting for Food in Seaside and delivered it to the Seaside Food Bank. 

It was a great way to start the day.
