Sharing the Coast Keynote
The tenth annual Sharing the Coast Conference will take place March 8-10 at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (2030 S.E. Marine Science Dr.) in the South Beach area of Newport. The event will feature speakers, panels, and field trips, all designed to provide CoastWatchers with monitoring skills and deepen their background knowledge of coastal science and natural history. The public is invited, and the presentations will be of interest to anyone who wishes to learn more about the coast. Co-sponsor as in past years is the Northwest Aquatic and Marine Educators.
The conference will kick off with a keynote talk on Friday evening, March 8, 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30) in the Hennings Auditorium at the Marine Science Center. The speaker has not yet been determined, but will be someone who can provide context for the many aspects of citizen science in which CoastWatchers are involved. The talk will be free and open to all.
Mark your calendars!
