A Whale of a Scavenger Hunt
Park: MacKerricher SP
This program is fun for all ages and begins at the visitor’s center. Hike yourself through the park searching for whale related facts on an adventurous journey that includes arts & crafts, a unique visitor, and a prize!
MacKerricher State Park,
located three miles north of Fort Bragg on Highway 1, is an ideal location for watching migrating whales. A wheelchair accessible boardwalk allows access to the headlands of Laguna Point along the whale route.
Docents will present public whale walks and provide binoculars and a spotting scope to help visitors study whales and other fascinating marine and bird wildlife.
A rare, reconstructed Gray Whale Skeleton is on permanent display near the visitor center and entry kiosk. The skeleton is a composite of two whales that beached on the Mendocino Coast, two years apart. Humpback Whale bones are also on display giving a visual size perspective between the grays and humpbacks.
This is a ‘must see’ popular & free event. For additional information call (707)961-0471.
