Oregon rocky shore habitat

The Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve present two back-to-back presentations in December.

“Life on the Rocks: Oregon’s Rocky Shore Habitats,” featuring Charlie Plubon, takes place Wednesday, Dec. 11, at 7 p.m., “World of Haystack Rock” lecture series, Cannon Beach Library, 131 Hemlock St., Cannon Beach.

The presentation returns Thursday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m., presented by Lower Nehalem Watershed Council, Pine Grove Community House, 225 Laneda Ave., Manzanita.

At each presentation, hear about the importance of rocky shore ecosystems, unique habitat adaptations of the fascinating organisms that live there, and historical protections for these areas. Learn about Oregon's current process to update the state's special rocky habitat designations, during which the public will have the opportunity to make proposals and recommendations for special management areas like the marine garden at Haystack Rock.

Charlie Plybon is Oregon policy manager for Surfrider Foundation and chairman of the working group responsible for drafting the update. He will be joined by Department of Land Conservation and Development staff working on the update process.
