The Cascade Head Biosphere Collaborative (CHBC) is hosting its second annual “Art on the Beach” weekend on July 16-18. This event celebrates community science and artistic expression to raise awareness for conservation efforts in this area. At 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 17, CHBC, the Oregon State University Marine Studies Initiative, and the Elakha Alliance will host an art and science presentation called “Forests of the Sea and the Sea Otters that Call Them Home” at the Lincoln City Cultural Center 540 N.E. Hwy 101. This free presentation will immerse the audience in the undersea world of kelp forest ecosystems and highlight the Elakha Alliance’s work to restore sea otters along the Oregon Coast. Oregon Shores was a founding member of the Elakha Alliance and actively supports their effort to study the possibility of reintroducing sea otters to Oregon waters.
