Haystack Rock Happenings

It's been another great week at Haystack Rock. Our beautiful Marine Garden has been protected by the Haystack Rock Awareness Program for 30 years, ensuring that each new generation can enjoy the marine life and nesting birds that call Haystack  Rock home!

There are a number events in the coming weeks that will inform and educate you about the history of HRAP and opportunities to get involved. Consider joining us for one or all of these events.

Welcome the Tufted Puffins

On Earth Day, Wednesday April 22nd at 10 am, the Tufted Puffins will be welcomed back to Haystack Rock by children from local schools. Haystack Rock Awareness Program interpreters will be on the beach from 7:00 am to 1:30 pm.

Thirty Year Anniversary Exhibit

The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum and Cannon Beach's Haystack Rock Awareness Program have partnered to celebrate HRAP's 30th anniversary. For thirty years, HRAP has valiantly protected the delicate ecosystem of Haystack Rock. The exhibit celebrates the program's aspects of "educating, protecting, and inspiring." HRAP is a professionally staffed and volunteer driven program. The exhibit will explore the tide pools through the eyes of those who have dedicated their lives to the protection and preservation of Haystack Rock. The exhibit will be on display April 18th through June 18th. Don't miss this fabulous show!

Volunteer Training

A spring training session for HRAP volunteers will be held on Saturday April 25th. This is an opportunity to open your eyes to natural wonders and prepare to become a volunteer at Haystack Rock. You will learn about interpreting to the public and the geology, nesting birds, and intertidal life at the rock. The training will be held at Cannon Beach City Hall (163 E Gower St) from 9am to 2pm.
