The Cape Perpetua Collaborative has launched a Marine Reserve Ambassador Program at Smelt Sands State Park in Yachats, Oregon. During the weekends through September, volunteers will be on hand to answer questions, promote safety and tide pool etiquette as well as enhance awareness of local resources and history, bringing alive the richness of this small little town adjacent to the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve.

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, appreciation, and highlighting Yachats as a special area on the central coast. We want to encourage visitors to act like a local and appreciate the significance around them.

If you are driving through Yachats, stop by Smelt Sands and say high! Ask us about getting a scavenger hunt, color sheet and how you can get a sticker!
