Sat Jun 6 2009 9:00 AM -- Apr 7 2009 2009 Coastal Climate Action Conference Set for June 6-7, in Newport
Eponymous breakers at The Breakers CondominiumsIf you're a dedicated conservationist, and have taken action over the years to protect special places or threatened wildlife and fish, you know how overwhelming the problems associated with "climate change" can feel, and you may have wondered what one person can do to make a difference.
Oregon Shores has planned its Spring 2009 Coast Conference, to be held in Newport on June 6-7, around the goal of empowering our members and the public with sound science, hopeful attitudes and meaningful actions that individuals can take to help turn this problem around for future generations.
The conference will begin at the Newport Performing Arts Center on June 6, with presentations from scientists on changes expected for Oregon's coastal region over the coming decades due to climate change. The balance of the conference will serve to empower our members and the public to take action — in their own lives and communities — and seek changes in state and federal policies to help reverse global warming over the long run, while taking steps to "adapt" to impacts that are expected to occur over the coming decades to Oregon's coast.
A dinner or reception is being planned for Saturday night, and a set of uplifting outdoor activities, including a beach walk and bay cruise, will be offered to give participants a chance to exchange ideas and "re-create" in the natural landscape of Oregon's coast.
Mark your calendar now, then come back to visit OregonShores.org for more information. Or, sign up (send us an email), and we'll send you more details as they develop!
