As part of this summer’s series of “BioBlitz” events, a number of local organizations have banded together to sponsor a BioBlitz at the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve.  Participants will meet a 9 a.m. for a one-mile walk on Neahkahnie Beach, at the north end of Manzanita, during which a bioblitz will be conducted.  (If you are unfamiliar with the term, a “bioblitz” is a one-day, intensive survey of all species in a given area.  They usually combine the efforts of experts and citizens helping for the day.)  The event, free and open to all, runs until noon.

Sponsors of the event include the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council, Lower Nehalem Community Trust, Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, and Oregon Coast Aquarium.

The end of Neah-Kah-Nie Beach connects with Cape Falcon Marine Reserve and the Lower Nehalem Community Trust's Peregrine Point, a protected lush green forest rising from the sand that extends the protected lands of Oswald West State Park.
