Learn about rare birds, wilderness at Cape Perpetua today

Posted: Friday, Jul 25th, 2014

YACHATS — Today, two exciting wildlands related programs will be presented at the Cape Perpetua Visitor center.

Beginning at 11 a.m., visitors can join “accidental naturalist” Maria Mudd Ruth as she describes her book, “Rare Bird: Pursuing the Mystery of the Marbled Murrelet,” and her journey to learn about the secret life of this endangered seabird that nests in the Siuslaw National Forest and other old-growth forests of the Pacific Northwest.

Later, at 1:30 p.m., Chandra LeGue, field coordinator for Oregon Wild, will give a presentation on the importance of wilderness, the history of wilderness protections in the Siuslaw National Forest and beyond.

These programs are being offered as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.
