On Thursday, Dec. 8, 7 p.m., Oregon Shores will host a webinar on “Eelgrass and How to Protect It.” The event is free and open to all.

The presenter is Anu Sawkar, the attorney with the Crag Law Center with whom we collaborate in the Coastal Law Project. She will discuss this critical component of estuarine ecosystems, and explain the land use processes and other regulatory arenas in which citizens can get involved to demand stronger protection. She will place special emphasis on Yaquina Bay, where an update of the “estuary management plan” that governs that estuary is underway, and public involvement will soon be invited.

To register for the webinar, go here.
