Nature Matters: Where Nature and Culture Intersect
Three distinct types of orcas live in the waters off the Oregon Coast. One group, known as the Southern Resident community, is one of the most endangered populations of whales in the world. Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) is dedicated to their protection and ensuring the Southern Residents share our coast for generations to come. Colleen Weiler, the Jessica Rekos Fellow for WDC, will discuss how these orcas are connected to Oregon and explain ways in which Oregonians can help.
Nature Matters is brought to you on the second Thursday of each month by Lewis and Clark National Historical Park in partnership with the North Coast Watershed Association. Doors to the Lovell Showroom open at 6 pm, talk starts at 7 pm. Food & beverages are available through the Taproom. All ages are welcome and never a cover.
