ASTORIA — Go on a virtual underwater tour of Oregon’s five marine sites to explore the work of the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife and its many collaborators at the next Nature Matters talk, 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14.
The free presentation with Cristen Don, the Marine Reserves Program lead at the ODFW, takes place at Fort George Brewery’s Lovell Showroom, 1483 Duane St. This event is open to the public. Doors open at 6 p.m. to purchase dinner or beverages beforehand.
ODFW is seeking input from local communities for development of the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve site management plan being written in 2019. ODFW is looking for activities and projects of interest to local communities to implement in the marine reserve. By highlighting the communities’ interests in the management plan, ODFW hopes to attract additional research and resources to foster community-led projects.
