Welcome the Orcas
The Whale Trail invites the public to an inspirational, educational, fun and family-friendly event, “Welcome the Orcas,” on Saturday, December 1, to mark the annual return of the Southern Resident orcas to the inland waters of Puget Sound.
At the event, members of the public can learn about the final recommendations put forth by Governor Inslee’s Southern Resident killer whale task force and have fun learning about Seattle’s famous residents and the major threats to their survival.
Free, open to the public event and environmental booths, face painting, orca BINGO and an orca parade to welcome back the Southern Residents to central Puget Sound. Event-goers are encouraged to dress in their best “orca spirit” costumes!
