The beauty of the natural environment is what draws many people to visit the Oregon Coast or to put down roots and stay forever. And those who want to play a part in safeguarding these natural treasures can find out how at the 2019 Green Volunteer Fair, this Saturday, Feb. 23, in Lincoln City.
The event will feature presentations about all sorts of environmental stewardship opportunities — from ongoing projects like Snowy Plover patrol to one-time events such as marine BioBlitzes, biological surveys aimed at recording all the living species within a designated area.
Groups in attendance will include the Audubon Society of Lincoln City, Lincoln City Parks and Recreation, Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District, Midcoast Watersheds Council, Oregon Shores CoastWatch, Portland Audubon Society, Oregon Coast Aquarium, Oregon State Parks’ Whale Watching Spoken Here, and the Otter Rock and Cascade Head Marine Reserve Citizen Science team.
Light refreshments will be available and door prizes on offer.
The event will run from 10 am to 1 pm at Oregon Coast Community College, 3788 SE High School Drive.
