Telegraph Cove hosts Springer reunion

Whale-watching, barbecue and panel discussion celebrate rescue of wayward Orca

Telegraph Cove continues its summerlong centennial celebration this weekend with a reunion to mark the recovery and return of Springer, the orphaned orca found in Puget Sound 10 years ago.

The week features whale-watching trips with Stubbs Island Whale Watching daily and an environmental fair at the Whale Interpretive Centre through Saturday.

It culminates with a panel discussion Saturday, July 14, beginning at 9:30 a.m. with some of Springer’s rescuers at the Whale Interpretive Centre, and wraps up with Gordie Graham’s renown salmon barbecue on the boardwalk beginning at 5 p.m.

It is the third reunion event to mark the 10th anniversary of Springer’s recovery from Washington’s waters and eventual return to her pod in Johnstone Strait.

The first event was hosted by the Vancouver Aquarium June 12, and another was hosted in Seattle June 23.
