OREGON COAST -- Every winter an estimated 20,000 gray whales migrate south from Alaska, passing the Oregon coast as they make their way to Baja, Mexico.
Volunteers with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department will set up at 24 whale watching sites. They plan to offer tips and facts about the animals as they come through.
Volunteers will be at the locations from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
According to Oregon State Parks officials, the Sea Lions Caves, Umpqua Lighthouse State Park and Face Rock Scenic Viewpoint are some of the best locations to see the whales.
