Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve Ambassador Program (flyer) at Smelt Sands State Park in Yachats, Oregon this summer. Trained volunteers will be on hand to answer questions, promote tide pool etiquette and enhance awareness of local resources and history, bringing alive the richness of Yachats, a small coastal town adjacent to the Cape Perpetua Marine Protected Area.
Most visitors to Yachats just pass through on the busy highway. Others who stay to enjoy the sites and natural beauty are unaware of the marine ecosystem they are witnessing and unfortunately, this can put visitors at risk of injury to themselves and to marine wildlife. The Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve Ambassador program provides an avenue for environmental preservation and appreciation. The Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve Ambassador Program aims to encourage visitors to embrace the significance around them.
If you are visiting or passing through Yachats during the summer weekends of 2021, stop by Smelt Sands State Park and say high!
