The Friends of Haystack Rock and the Cannon Beach Library will host Charlie Plybon from the Friends of Cape Falcon for a “Life on the Rocks Habitats: Oregon’s Rocky Shore” as part of the World of Haystack Rock Library Lecture Series 2019-2020 at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Come learn about the importance of rocky shore ecosystems, unique habitat adaptations of the fascinating organisms that live there, and historical protections for these areas. You will also learn about Oregon's current process to update the state's special rocky habitat designations, during which the public will have the opportunity to make proposals and recommendations for special management areas like the marine garden at Haystack Rock.
Plybon is Oregon Policy Manager for Surfrider Foundation and Chair of the working group responsible for drafting the update. He will be joined by Department of Land Conservation and Development staff working on the update process.
