Lower Nehalem Watershed Council Speaker Series Presents “North Coast Ecology” with Katie Voelke
Thursday November 14th at 7pm the LNWC Speaker Series will feature Katie Voelke, Executive Director of the North Coast Land Conservancy, for a discussion titled “North Coast Ecology: A Picture of Diversity”.
Katie’s talk will focus on the terrestrial ecosystems of the northern Oregon coast. The varied habitats, from ocean beaches to 3000 ft peaks, support a diverse set of species. This diversity is one reason scientists consider this region to be particularly resilient to the effects of climate change. It also puts a fine point on the need to thoughtfully manage this land with a view to the future.
These presentations are part of the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council’s regular Speaker Series. All talks are held at the Pine Grove Community House, 225 Laneda Ave in Manzanita. The program begins at 7 pm.
Our upcoming speakers and topics are:
Nov 14th – Katie Voelke – North Coast Ecology: A Picture of Diveristy

A raffle will also be held. A $5 donation at the door gives attendees a chance to win a gift certificate to a local business and winners are drawn at the end of the presentation. “I ♥ The Nehalem River” bumper stickers will also be available by donation.
