Dana Point Times
On Friday, May 17 the Dana Point Civic Association will host Todd Mansur, treasurer of The Gulf of Catalina Grey Whale Preservation & Education Foundation, at the organization’s monthly coffee chat.
Mansur will discuss migration patterns of the California grey whale along the southern Orange County coast.
An Orange County native, Mansur began his career on the water at 13 as the only crew member of a 20 passenger fishing vessel. Today, Mansur is the lead naturalist at Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching and conducts pre-excursion teaching for visiting Orange County students.
The Grey Whale Foundation works to get children out of the classroom and into setting where they can experience nature, learning first-hand through sightings of a breaching whale or a pod of surfing dolphin.
The Coffee Chat will be held on May 17 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at DPCA president Jim Miller’s Coffee Importers in the Dana Point Harbor. The event is open to the public and free coffee will be provided to attendees. For more information on the Grey Whale Foundation, visit www.graywhalefoundation.org.
