Botanist Doug Glavich will explore the distribution of forest and meadow plant communities in the Oregon Coast Range in a talk at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center on Saturday, Dec. 7, 11 a.m.  This will be part of the Cape Perpetua Fall Speaker Series.  The visitor center is located on Hwy 101 about three miles south of Yachats.

Glavich is a Forest Service Area Ecologist who works across the Siuslaw, Willamette, and Mt. Hood national forests and the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. He will discuss biophysical environments that drive vegetation patterns and structure. His focal areas will be non-forest habitats: linking meadow vegetation parameters to wildlife needs, classifying plant species composition types, and remote sensing.

The event is free, but a Northwest Forest Pass, Oregon Coast Passport, federal recreation pass, or $5 day-use fee is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and at some trailheads and day use sites. For more information on this event, contact the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center at (541) 547-3289.
