Friends of Haystack Rock present “Conversation IS Climate Action!” featuring Katie Voelke, executive director of the North Coast Land Conservancy, A presentation and conversation about how to combat climate change in Oregon. The presentation, in conjunction with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program, takes place April 14 at 7 p.m. via Facebook Live @Friends of Haystack.

Voelke was raised in a home under oak trees where she spent many hours collecting bugs, making mud pies with her sister, and camping and hiking with her parents in the summers. Voelke started as NCLC’s first Stewardship Director working under founding executive director Neal Maine. After three years of learning the ropes alongside Neal, she took the helm in 2008.
