Orca Sing 2016 @ Lime Kiln State Park

Orca Sing 2016, June 25 at Lime Kiln Point State Park, 7 p.m.

Orca Sing is an annual event where people gather for an evening of music at Lime Kiln Point State Park to honor the Southern Resident orcas. This year’s event is the 17th annual and will take place on Saturday, June 25, beginning at 7 p.m.

This year, Seattle’s City Cantabile Choir will perform. We will also celebrate Washington State Parks and Orca Awareness Month. While there is no guarantee, we hope that the orcas will grace us with a pass-by. The event is free and open to the public.

Participants are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy the beauty of Lime Kiln.  Tours of the historic lighthouse will be offered before and after the concert. A Discovery Pass is required for parking at the State Park and can be purchased through the Lime Kiln Point State Park Interpretive Center. Carpooling is encouraged as parking is limited. Round-trip transportation is also available through San Juan Transit for $10 a person (pick up is at 5:30 at The Whale Museum with an 8:30 departure from Lime Kiln).

This year’s event partners include Lime Kiln Point State Park, F.O.L.K.S. (Friends of Lime Kiln Society), City Cantabile Choir, Friends of the San Juans, Orca Network, Vashon Hydrophone Project, and The Whale Museum.
