The Great Outdoors: Oldest Ponderosa Pine in Region

There are so many natural treasures in Central Oregon that some can be easy to overlook. For this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings takes us to one of the oldest and biggest of those treasures at La Pine State Park.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor, Parr Lumber, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.

Destination Oregon: Whale Watching in Depoe Bay

Next week is spring break, and coincidentally, it’s also whale watching week on the Oregon Coast. Volunteers will be on hand up and down the coast to help vacationers spot gray whales as they migrate.

In this week’s Destination Oregon report, our Dave Jones takes us on land and sea in search of these great mammals. Special thanks to Dockside Charters in Depoe Bay for taking us whale watching.
