Skeleton of Gray Whale
The Lewis and Clark Expedition documented three wales during their 1805-1806 arrival and wintering on the Pacific Ocean. The whale skeleton commemorates William Clark's observation of 19th March 1805 near present day Long Beach. "I saw… Several joints of the backbone of a whal which must have foundered on this part of the Coast" In May 2000, a 38 food long sub-adult male Gray Whale beached and died about one mile north of here. A decomposing whale will create an over-whelming smell, so the whale was buried on the beach. The City of Long Beach received permission from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to display the skeleton. In March of 2002, students, city employees and biologists located and carefully excavated the skeleton. The bones were cleaned and preserved. In April 2003 the bones where rearticulated into the full skeleton before you.
