The Cape Perpetua Collaborative is hosting the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve Ambassador Program this summer at Smelt Sands State Park, located at the north end of Yachats.

Trained volunteers will be on hand to answer questions, promote tide pool etiquette and enhance awareness of local resources and history, bringing alive the richness of Yachats, a small coastal town adjacent to the Cape Perpetua Marine Protected Area.

Most visitors to Yachats just pass through on the busy highway. Others who stay to enjoy the sights and natural beauty are unaware of the marine ecosystem they are witnessing and, unfortunately, this can put visitors at risk of injury to themselves and to marine wildlife. The Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve Ambassador program provides an avenue for environmental preservation and appreciation. The Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve Ambassador Program aims to encourage visitors to embrace the significance around them.
