Fri Mar 2 2007 8:00 AM -- Mar 3 2007 Coast Conference Central in Florence, March 2 - 3
|Talks on everything from the nitty-gritty of land use planning to the potential effects of global warming will be offered at Coast Conference Central, coming up in Florence March 2-3 at Lane Community College's Florence branch. |
There are two activities on Friday, March 2. At 8 a.m. Friday morning, those interested in the beached bird survey, or who are simply curious about those intrepid souls who volunteer to spend their time with dead bird carcasses, are invited to join the monthly survey at Baker Beach for the day. See the following item.
At 4 p.m. on Friday, Oregon Shores' land use director, Cameron La Follette, will lead a very basic, how-to-do-it workshop on citizen involvement in Oregon's land use planning process. This is the event to attend if you want to know how to speak up and make a difference on land use issues.
The main event is Saturday, March 3, beginning at 10 a.m. Speakers include Nancy Steinberg on rocky shore ecology; former Sea Grant educator Vicki Osis on the current state of our knowledge about climate change (including impacts on coastal areas and the possible causes of the "dead zone"); and geologist Roger Hart on Oregon's changing sandy shoreline. Workshops in the afternoon will include one led by marine ecologist Cynthia Trowbridge on invasive species of the shoreline, and one involving both Cameron La Follette and Paul Robertson, manager of the Devils Lake Water Improvement District, on the link between land use planning and protecting clean water.
Except for the beached bird survey, all talks and workshops will be held at the Lane Community College Florence Center, 3149 Oak St. in Florence (next to Siuslaw High School, one block west of Hwy. 101). The conference is free and open to all; please invite others who might be interested.
