SEASIDE — The Friends of the Seaside Library will host author Marcy Houle at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Houle is the author behind “A Generous Nature: Lives Transformed by Oregon.” The book profiles 21 conservationists and activists who’ve worked to preserve Oregon’s natural lands.
Houle, a fifth-generation Oregonian, spent over a decade interviewing the different people featured in the book. One of the book’s featured profiles is of Neal Maine, a local conservationist. Maine will participate in the event.
In the book, Houle also focuses on a variety of locations and laws relevant to conservation.
Houle is also the author of “Wings for My Flight,” “One City’s Wilderness” and “The Prairie Keepers.” Houle’s work has also been featured in the New York Times, Reader’s Digest and Nature Conservancy Magazine.
