Join the MidCoast Watersheds Council (MCWC) on Thursday, Aug. 4, at 6 p.m. to hear updates on their 2022 projects and plans for the future from Council Coordinator Evan Hayduck. They will discuss their progress in restoring many riverbed habitats to benefit the fish that depend on them. Additionally, they will share how they are expanding their work to the estuaries of Yaquina and Alsea rivers in the coming years and why this work will be critical to these ecosystems that connect rivers to the sea.

About the speaker: “Evan was born and raised in Western Washington and has spent his entire career dedicated to restoring natural systems in the Pacific Northwest. After completing his undergraduate at Santa Clara University, Evan returned to Washington to complete two AmeriCorps terms with the Washington Conservation Corps and received a Master’s of Environmental Studies from The Evergreen State College. He has worked in various ecosystems, from work in estuary and riparian areas, to prairie and oak savanna restoration at Joint Base Lewis McChord, and spent three seasons growing plants for sub-alpine meadow restoration at Mt. Rainier. Since 2016, Evan has been the Council Coordinator for the MidCoast Watersheds Council, working with partners to complete major restoration projects in the Council’s nearly one-million-acre footprint on the coast.
