Thursday Lecture: Nature Matters

Fish Tales: Traditions and Challenges of Seafood in Oregon

Oregonians love local food, but finding truly local fish can be hard, even on the coast. We’re now much more aware of ethically grown meat and vegetables, but seafood remains somewhat mysterious. How does that crab get from the ocean to our table, and what’s the true cost of cheap salmon at the grocery store? This conversation with food writer Jennifer Burns Bright engages with our complex relationship with American seafood. From cultural traditions to economic and ethical challenges, from the docks to the markets, we’ll explore ways to apply our food values to the products of the sea.

Doors to the Lovell Showroom will open at 6pm. Arrive early, seating is limited. Food and beverages are available through the Taproom. All ages are welcome and never a cover. Nature Matters is hosted by Lewis and Clark National Historical Park in partnership with the North Coast Watershed Association.

WHERE: Lovell Showroom, Corner of 14th & Duane Astoria, Oregon 97103 Map
