Winter whale watching week is almost here. The Oregon State Parks and Recreation has dubbed the week of December 26-31 Winter Whale Watching Week.

It is the annual migration of the gray whales as they make their way to warmer waters.

Several locations on the Oregon coast will have volunteers offering a summary of gray whale migration information from 10 AM to 1 PM.

Volunteers will be equipped with a reference manual and filed guide to marine mammals of the Pacific Northwest to help answer questions.
