Today Sunday March 8, a deep water juvenile male Fin Whale washed up on the beach at Heceta Head Lighthouse. On Friday it was seen at the mouth of the Siuslaw River in Florence. Hatfield Marine Science Center and Oregon State University officials took samples to try to determine why the whale died. It is hoped that this 40 foot whale will wash back out to see Monday at a higher tide than today. The state park was closed to traffic this afternoon until further notice. There is parking on the west side of 101 just after the tunnel and bridge.
