Thursday Talks: Nature Matters

Monitoring Clatsop Plains Elk

Presented by Emily Scott.

Elk are a quintessential figure of the Pacific Northwest, and a relic of cultural, historical, and ecological significance within the Clatsop Plains. Beginning in 2008, Lewis and Clark National Historical Park and its partners implemented a research plan which gathers key information on Clatsop Plains elk herds. These data are integral for a sound understanding of local elk ecology and have direct implications on management decisions aiming for balanced preservation of elk and human interests. This seminar by Scientists-in-Parks Steward, Emily Scott, will help you get to know your ungulate neighbors by describing this research, what it reveals, and what it could mean.

Nature Matters is brought to you on the fourth Thursday of each month by Lewis and Clark National Historical Park in partnership with the North Coast Watershed Association. Join us in the Lovell Showroom on Thursday, May 26th. Doors to the Lovell Showroom open at 6pm with food & drinks available via the Taproom window. All ages welcome and never a cover.
