The Twelve Days of Earth Day Committee presents the eighth annual 12 Days of Earth Day celebration in Cannon Beach, April 11-22. All are free and open to the public.

Oceanographer Cindy Bryden discusses her favorite topic, tides. Dawn Harris from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be presenting “Protection of Haystack Rock and Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuges,” with an emphasis on sea birds. Tiffany Boothe from the Seaside Aquarium will be providing intertidal animals that can be found in our very own tide pools. Optional evening program at Public Coast Brewing with Chrissy Smith, Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve coordinator speaking about our newest marine reserve. This training is valuable to both new recruits and seasoned volunteers.
