Coastal conservationist Paul Engelmeyer will share details of a citizen science project when he addresses the Oregon Chapter of the American Cetacean Society this Saturday, May 11.

This is the fourth year of the Whales & Marine Reserves Education and Awareness Project, which invites members of the public to help gather data on whale behavior in Oregon’s five marine reserves. The project is a part of a partnership between the ACS Oregon Chapter, the Oregon Marine Reserves Partnership and the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife.

The meeting will also include training for those interested in volunteering with the project. No volunteer commitment is required to attend the presentation.

Saturday’s meeting will run from 10 am to 1 pm at Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye Street.
