Marbled Murrelet Lecture
Kim Nelson, a research biologist at Oregon State University, will speak on "The Enigmatic Marbled Murrelet and Oregon's Marine Reserves" on Wednesday, March 31, at 6 p.m. in the Seaside Public Library (1131 Broadway St.). The event is free and open to the public.
The talk is part of the Listening to the Land lecture series, sponsored by the Lower Necanicum Watershed Council.
The Marbled Murrelet is a small seabird that breeds along the Pacific Coast from Alaska to central California. Spending most of their lives in marine waters, Marbled Murrelets fly inland for nesting, mainly in trees of old-growth and late-successional forests.
Listening to the Land is a monthly winter speaker series offered January through May and presented by the Necanicum Watershed Council in partnership with the Seaside Public Library. This year’s theme will explore “living on our dynamic coastal edge.” Lectures are offered the 3rd Wednesday of every month, January through May. Presentations start at 6 p.m. at the Seaside Library; doors open at 5:30.
