On Wednesday, Dec. 14, the Friends of Haystack Rock and the Cannon Beach Library will continue the World of Haystack Rock Library Lecture Series.

This month's speaker will be Allison Anholt, Coastal Community Science Biologist with Portland Audubon. Anholt will discuss her work with community science monitoring of snowy plovers on the Northern Oregon coast.

About the speaker:

"Allison is the Coastal Community Science Biologist for Portland Audubon, where she manages community science monitoring projects for coastal birds on Oregon's North Coast, including Western Snowy Plovers, Black Oystercatchers, and local seabirds. Before coming to Portland Audubon, she worked at the intersection of coastal wildlife conservation and community science in the Aleutian Islands, the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the Florida Everglades, and some of the busiest beaches in the country in Cape May, New Jersey. She holds an M.S. in Ecology and Evolution from Rutgers University, a B.S. in Law and Policy from The College of New Jersey and is currently finishing her Ph.D. working with First Nations fisheries on issues of seabird bycatch in Arctic Canada."
