Marine Reserve Awareness Month!

We are excited to announce that Audubon Society of Lincoln City (ASLC) has designated August 2021 as Oregon Marine Reserve Awareness Month for these living laboratories overseen by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW). With a focus on Cascade Head Marine Reserve, this effort aligns with ASLC’s mission to encourage residents and visitors to protect and enjoy the native birds, other wildlife, and habitats found on the Central Oregon Coast.

ASLC has planned a series of events and activities to enhance appreciation of Oregon’s coast beneath the ocean surface—a marine world largely unseen by the public, but one that is vitally important to the interconnectedness of plants, animals, and people in ways known and yet to be discovered.
