|12 Days of Earth Day - Cannon Beach|
Heard of the 12 Days of Christmas? Earth Day is such a big deal in Cannon Beach that it's hosting "12 Days of Earth Day".
It starts on the beach, at Haystack Rock.
It helps that springtime inhabitants of the iconic rock are cute.
They’re tufted puffins, and they return to Haystack every April for mating season. It’s here that they’ll nest and raise chicks, so they’re natural mascots for
Cannon Beach Earth Day celebrations.
“12 Days” starts Thur. (April 11) with a “welcome home” ceremony for the birds. Students in puffin masks cross the sands with a banner in honor of the mascots.
Other daily events include conservation talks, free films, art shows, free yoga and more.
For visitors, “12 Days” is a great introduction to the best of Cannon Beach:
