Weyerhaeuser closes lands

Citing "uncharacteristically dry weather," the Weyerhaeuser Co. has temporarily closed about 468,000 acres of its timberlands in Western Oregon to all recreational and public access, effective immediately. The closure includes Weyerhaeuser tree farms in the Bellfountain, Cheshire, Coburg Hills, Cottage Grove, Holley, Marcola, Mohawk, Monroe and Springfield areas. For updated access information, call the company's toll-free Hunter and Recreational Access Hotline at (888) 741-5403.

Whale Watch activities begin

Don't look now (even though whales are there) because Oregon's official "Spring Whale Watch Week" activities don't begin until Saturday. More than 200 trained volunteers will be on duty from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 19-26 at 28 official "Whale Watching Spoken Here" sites. Whale Watch volunteers provide tips on how to spot the big mammals and information about their annual migration from lagoons in Mexico to their summer feeding waters off Alaska.

Details: 747-1504.
