WMBD at Siuslaw National forest

Cape Perpetua’s Migratory Birds Day featured a number of interactive activities and art & crafts to go along with our information and education booth. We were fortunate enough to have the help of our other EFTA intern Robert for our WMBD event. He came all the way down from his site up to help us out on such an important day. You can read all about his work being done up at Yaquina Head here. In line with the theme for this year, he brought with him a game for visitors to identify whether they should ‘take or leave’ the stuff that was ‘natural or plastic.’ If it is plastic, we want to take it from the beach, but if it is natural we can leave it for marine animals to use. They developed the game up at Yaquina Head as a way to show beachgoers the different objects that wash up on the shore, and show how identifying plastics may not be as easy as you think. The game was one of the most popular of the booths because it was engaging and gave the visitors a chance to test their knowledge. I hope to develop something similar with materials found on our beaches, to use here at the Cape for our summer programs.
