CANNON BEACH — The World of Haystack Rock 2018-19, a series of lectures at the Cannon Beach Library, will be held on the second Wednesday of each month, 7 to 8:30 p.m. November through May.
The first talk takes place Wednesday, Nov. 14. Cristen Don, Marine Reserves Program leader with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, will present “There’s More Beneath the Surface.”
Don oversees the policy work and administration of the program. Over the past 15 years her work has spanned a variety of ocean-related topics, including marine protected areas, ocean renewable energy and fisheries.
We’ll take a virtual underwater tour of Oregon’s five marine sites and explore the work done at the Cape Falcon site by ODFW and our many collaborators.
The lectures are sponsored by the Friends of Haystack Rock, a nonprofit organization focused on keeping Haystack Rock healthy and thriving.
The library is located at 131 N. Hemlock St.
