Wild Pacific Trail - Brown's Beach to OJ Deck

Marine Kid's Week Activities:  Remember that kid's week activities can be done at any time within your own bubble.  See below for today's recommended activity and check other days for other possible activities.

Do you want to learn more about identifying some of the local Grey Whales?  This activity is available all week along the Wild Pacific Trail.  Please see the printable GW ID Hunt for more information and a catalog of the 8 locals you can find. 

Eight signs have been posted along the Wild Pacific Trail from Brown's Beach parking lot to the OJ Deck (2.5 km round trip) with pictures of some of our local resident Grey Whales. The QR code on these signs will take you to the Locals catalog so you can identify the local you are seeing on the sign.  Find all eight and enter to win our draw for prizes no later than 4 pm on March 21st.

 Please observe all COVID protocols while on the trail and stay healthy!

We have structured our suggested activities so that they can be done within the safety of your own home bubble.  There are no "in person" gatherings at this year's festival.
