12 Days of Earth Day - Cannon Beach

haystack_rockHeard 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:


 

  • Volunteers from the Haystack Rock Awareness Program (HRAP) give beach talks about the Marine Garden and Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge.
  • At the Cannon Beach History Center, exhibits explain tide pools and tides.
  • Back at the beach, HRAP members discuss bird life on the rocks and sea life in tide pools.
  • Kirsten Massebeau to present  "The Anthropogenic Challenges Whales and Dolphins Face in a Modern Ocean", Cannon 

 

 

  • Beach Community Hall
  • "Soil & Water", a talk by Wendi Agalzoff of Clatsop Soil and Water Conservation District.
  • Rebecca Lerner to present on foraging on the coast, Cannon Beach History Center and Museum
  • Wildlife Center of the North Coast tour
