CANNON BEACH — The Haystack Rock Awareness Program is hosting a day camp 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 23, where the young and the young-at-heart can learn about sea creatures and make sea creature crafts with recyclable materials.

The “Egg Crate Sea Creature” camp will be led by Chrissy Smith from the Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve.

“It will be fun for all ages and abilities while participants learn about Haystack Rock’s intertidal animals, and make adorable sea creatures out of egg crates and paper towel rolls,” the program said in a release.

Participants should prepare to immerse themselves in the elements — by dressing for all types of weather— as they venture down to the beach in Cannon Beach. They will meet at the red truck in front of the rock.

This class is $35; proceeds support the HRAP Education Department, which offers free field trips educating over 2,500 students every year.

Now in its 32nd season on the beach, HRAP aims to protect, through education, the intertidal and bird ecology of the Marine Garden and National Wildlife Refuge at Haystack Rock.
