Volunteer Training Events


The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, along with our partners, will coordinate several volunteer training events each season.  Training sessions are designed to give volunteers general knowledge about gray whale anatomy, behavior, migration patterns and to become familiar with research taking place along our coast.

The sessions will also cover how to participate in the Whale Watch Week as a trained volunteer for years to come.

Sessions are taught by Marine Biologists, Oregon State Park Rangers and local Experts.
