TAKE ACTION!

Take action to protect our rocky coastal habitats.
Thanks to strong requests from coastal residents like you, Oregon will soon be empowering communities to propose lasting protections for the coast. But decision-makers need to hear from you on the next steps. More info...

Take action to protect our sea and shorebirds.
We need volunteers to help with surveys and monitoring of sea and shorebirds. Portland Audubon has taken the lead for many years on a variety of community science projects along the coast. Help is needed for such projects as Black Oystercatcher and Brown Pelican surveys, Snowy Plover Patrols, and Seabird Colony monitoring. All you need is time and willingness to learn. More information...

Take action to ban plastic bags and styrofoam in Oregon.
This legislative session, we have the chance to make a difference here in Oregon. House Bill 2509 would ban plastic bags statewide, and House Bill 2883 would ban styrofoam take-out containers and cups. Please urge your representative to vote yes on these bills. Contact them here...

Support the Lincoln City Cultural Center ~
Buy a Bird Brick!


We're inviting you to take part in our "Bird Brick" project!

I'm sure you've all heard that the Lincoln City Cultural Center just received funding from the State to help pay for the new Plaza. This is exciting news, but they still need donations from the public to meet the funding requirements. ASLC Board member Mark Nicholson and his wife, Debra, came up with a wonderful idea that will help the Cultural Center and be an outreach mechanism for ASLC - Bird Bricks!

We're inviting ASLC members and any member of the public who wants to participate, to check our list of species and find the one(s) that you'd like to have on your brick (we'll keep the list updated as people "reserve" the various bird names so you'll be able to see which ones haven't been chosen). We're hoping for a good variety!

If you want to particate, here's what you need to do:

1) choose a local bird species from our list of local birds,

Sample small bird brick

2) visit the a Cultural Center website to order a brick (or more than one) from the Cultural Center, and

Sample small bird brick (anonymous)

3) complete the online form with the name of the local bird name that you've chosen along with your name (or "LC Audubon" if you prefer to be anonymous).

Large Audubon bird brick


The bricks will be scattered throughout the plaza and paths at the Cultural Center. ASLC is purchasing a large brick that will invite people to search for and find all of the "bird bricks" in the plaza. We plan to have a checklist of the birds so you can check them off as you walk the new Plaza and find them (fun for kids of all ages!).
