Learn the ways of the whales

Ways of Whales workshop will be held Saturday, Jan. 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. at Camp Casey Conference Center, 1276 Engle Road, Coupeville.

Some of the region’s best experts on Pacific Northwest whales will present new information about orcas and the habitats that support them. Educational displays and materials will be available throughout the day as well.

This annual workshop has become a favorite regional gathering of whale experts and those who want to learn more about the whales. Naturalists, researchers, educators, or anyone who thrills at seeing whales and wants to know more about the amazing cetaceans that frequent our shorelines is welcome.

Cost of the workshop is $25. Lunch will be available for $10. For more information and registration go to  www.orcanetwork.org/news/events.html or contact Orca Network, 678-3451 or info@orcanetwork.org.

For off-island workshop attendees, the Captain Whidbey Inn offers a room discount of 20 percent if you mention you are attending the Ways of Whales workshop.
