Sept 8-10, 2017 | Observe, study and document marine life, coastal topography, and old growth forests along Oregon’s largest marine reserve.
September 8-10, 2017
Cape Perpetua, Oregon’s largest marine reserve protects essential habitat for hundreds of species, including the federally threatened Marbled Murrelet, Spotted Owl and Silverspot Butterfly. With our sketchbooks in hand we will observe, study and document marine life, coastal topography, and old growth forests. We will start our trip looking at the historic lineage of nature illustration with access to the rare collections at Oregon State University. We will then have an entire day at Cape Perpetua creating quick sketches, long drawings and taking a short hike. On our final day, we will travel north to Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. We will look for Red Urchins, Tide-pool Sculpins, and Iridescent Seaweed in the tide pools, Harbor Seals on the islands and many seabirds, including Common Murre and Black Oystercatcher, nestled on the volcanic cliffs.
