On Wednesday, Jan. 11, the Friends of Haystack Rock and the Cannon Beach Library will continue the World of Haystack Rock Library Lecture Series.

This month's lecture will be by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Marine Reserves Program Staff on what they have learned from the first 10 years of Oregon's Marine Reserves.

About the talk:

"In 2012, Oregon kicked off its marine reserve program with the establishment of the Otter Rock and Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve sites. The other three, including the Cape Falcon site on the north coast, came into effect in 2014 and 2016.  Then years later, the State is looking back at what we have learned and how to adapt the program going forward.  Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife staff will present highlights, focusing on ecological research."

The World of Haystack Rock Library Lecture Series is held on the second Wednesday of the month November through April at 7 p.m. at the Cannon Beach Library (131 N. Hemlock St, in Cannon Beach). This year’s season is dedicated to Sandi Lundy, a long-time supporter of the Cannon Beach Library, Friends of Haystack Rock, the North Coast Land Conservancy among many other organizations. 

This event is free and open to all. Anyone is welcome to attend in person or remotely via Facebook Live. The lectures are also recorded and will be available on the Friends of Haystack Rock's website.
