Our colleagues with the North Coast Land Conservancy (NCLC) are planning a gala evening celebrating coastal conservation and release of the landscape-celebrating book The Wild Edge: Freedom to Roam the Pacific Coast (Braided River), a photographic journey from the deep ocean to the summit of coastal-fronting mountains from Baja to the Arctic.

The event, featuring Bruce Barcott, the book’s lead essayist, takes place on Friday, Oct. 23, 5-7 p.m. at The Loft at the Red Building, 20 Basin Street, Astoria.  Barcott will read and share images by photographer Florian Schultz following an introduction by NCLC Executive Director Katie Voelke, one of the heroes of coastal conservation profiled in The Wild Edge. Enjoy food and drink and buy copies of the book signed by Barcott and contributing author Bonnie Henderson, NCLC communications coordinator (not to mention a CoastWatcher). Proceeds benefit NCLC’s conservation work on the Oregon Coast.

Tickets ($10) are available in advance at the NCLC office in Seaside (2609 N. Roosevelt Drive; 503-738-9126) or online at wildedge.brownpapertickets.com. Also available are 25 VIP tickets, which include a pre-event reception with Bruce Barcott from 4 to 5 p.m. ($100, $150 and $250); call Lynette at (503) 738-9126 for details.
