T

he Whale Museum in Friday Harbor invites everyone to come honor the lives and commemorate the deaths of the departed members of the Southern Resident Community of orcas.

At this third annual “Day of the Dead” celebration, we will pay tribute to those whales who were lost this year, as well as those who left us long ago. Come and share photos, stories, and memories of the orcas who are gone, but certainly not forgotten. Just as in the traditional Mexican “Day of the Dead,” refreshments will be provided.

For more information, please contact Cindy Hansen, education curator for the Whale Museum, at 360-378-4710 ext. 23 or cindy@whalemuseum.org.
