The newly installed gray whale wood carving will undoubtedly be a draw for anyone visiting the Discovery Trail for the first time.
In May 2000 the city of Long Beach buried a juvenile gray whale that had washed up dead on shore.
In early 2002 the city of Long Beach exhumed the whale carcass, which had only partly decayed at that point, in order to harvest the bones.
After stripping the remaining flesh from the bones, the skeleton was then articulated for display along the Discovery Trail.
In May 2003 the completed skeleton statue was installed near the Sid Snyder beach approach in Long Beach.
The new whale statue was carved by artist Josh Blewett, who has various carvings on display around the Peninsula.
Long Beach city workers move the old whale skull into place alongside the new wood carving.
