Back to The Stream

Join us in exploring the beautiful public lands of the Cape Perpetua region during this annual event. Participants will engage in outdoor exploration and species inventorying, followed by a presentation from a former artist in residence at the Cape.

Activities like these help local scientists better catalogue and monitor the species of the region, while engaging the public in purposeful conversation about conservation.
