Installation of the first "Whale Trail" sign will be celebrated from 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31, at Salt Creek Recreation Area near Joyce.
The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites where the public may view whales and other marine mammals from shore.
The sign is near the stairs leading to Tongue Point in the northwest corner of the park, which overlooks Crescent Bay, where gray whales often are seen.
Besides the sign dedication, there will be an environmental fair with displays from Whale Trail project team members.
Partner organizations are NOAA, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, People For Puget Sound, The Seattle Aquarium, the Whale Museum and Coast Watch Society, that hope to inspire appreciation and stewardship for the whales and the marine environment. Local partners and sponsors include Clallam County Parks, Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway Association and the Olympic Peninsula Visitor's Bureau.
