Rebecca will speak about the Natural Resource Condition Assessment that she and the USGS worked on with Olympic National Park from 2015-2018. In this multi-authored report, they examined the status, trends, threats, and information gaps for 12 important natural resources within Olympic National Park. This report was designed to lay an important foundation for developing resource management plans for the park. Rebecca will provide an overview of this assessment, why it’s important, and what they looked at. She will then move through the park, from the subalpine to the sea, highlighting some of the resources they explored, what they found, and how it’s relevant to our north Olympic communities. Natural resources covered may include elk, salmon, spotted owls, seastars, rivers, and others.
The Dungeness River Audubon Center is bringing back the, “Learn by the Light of the Moon” speaker series this spring with a whole new line-up. These talks will happen once a month, as the full moon dictates. The series provides opportunity for our community to hear from local naturalists and scientists, working to better understand the world around us. Please join us under the light of the full moon in our beautiful outdoor amphitheater for an evening of discovery and wonder.
There is seating in the amphitheater but feel free to bring lawn chairs and blankets!
Talks will happen rain or shine (if raining, will move into building.)
