Charles Harrison to Visit Oregon Caves
Oregon Caves Welcomes Guest Speaker
From September 24th to the 28th, Oregon Caves National Monument and the Oregon Caves Outfitters are proud to host Charles Harrison. Harrison has been involved in the design of more than 750 consumer products, including toasters, stereos, the first portable hair dryer, the see-through measuring cup, Craftsman tools, and the first plastic garbage can—something for nearly every area of the home.
He redesigned the now classic View-Master, which was invented at Oregon Caves in 1938. The public is invited free of charge to hear his talk on the View-Master and his career. He will speak at the Chateau lobby at 7 p.m. on September 25th, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday the 26th.

Did You Know?
Scorpions fluoresce or glow under ultraviolet (UV) black light. They can glow electric green or blue. Scorpions fluoresce because they contain a fluorescent protein in the upper layer of their exoskeleton. This layer is like your fingernail, but even more protective and tough. The special protein inside is thought by scientists to serve as an ultraviolet sensitivity mechanism, perhaps allowing the scorpion to avoid burning itself by staying exposed too long to damaging light levels.
