Grand Opening of Tidepool Visitor Contact Station
Since the mid 1970’s when stewardship of the tidepools was transferred to the National Park Service, the tidepools have been relatively isolated from the remainder of the park. In 1990, a Tidepool Preservation, Restoration and Education Program (TPERP) was initiated, which placed volunteers in the tidepools during low tides. Due to the success of the TPERP, in 2013 the park undertook the task of creating a visitor contact station. This now includes an education table with bio-models, shell samples, tide charts and grey whale artifacts as well as a facility for maintaining TPERP equipment and supplies, including first aid.
