Free Whale programs

The free program "Experiencing Gray Whales" will be offered four times at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center in observance of Whale Watch Week, Dec. 27-31, when the majority of about 18,000 gray whales will pass by on their 12,000-mile migration south to Mexico. Naturalist Michael Noack - who has studied gray whales and assisted with research missions - will lead presentations at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Dec. 26 and Dec. 28. Volunteers will be at Cape Perpetua from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Dec. 27-31, one of nearly 40 sites along the coast where volunteers will share info and help visitors spot whales. Presentations at Cape Perpetua are free, but a Northwest Forest Pass, Oregon Coast Passport or $5 day-use fee is required within the scenic area.

ECC named top COurse

The Eugene Country Club has been named "Best Golf Course in Oregon" by the travel research site Wanderbat.com. Using experts from Golf Digest, Golf.com and Golf Advisor, and info from thousands of golfers, the site listed ECC as No. 8 overall. The Robert Trent Jones-designed course is joined in the top 10 by facilities such as Augusta National Golf Club (No. 2), Pebble Beach Golf Links (No. 3) and Pinehurst Country Club (No. 6). The course, established in 1899, will be given new forward tees and other enhancements before playing host to the NCAA men's and women's golf championships on back-to-back weeks in May.
