The 8th Annual Cape Perpetua Land-Sea Symposium will take place virtually on November 19, and everyone is invited to log in and learn about this area where land and sea meet.
The Symposium is a community event aimed at promoting local stewardship efforts and raising awareness about current research being conducted within the Cape Perpetua nearshore and adjacent watersheds.
This year’s event will kick off with a welcome from Representative David Gomberg & Senator Arnie Roblan and follow with our keynote speaker Michael L. Posner, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of Oregon, who will speak on Calming the Mind. During his presentation, Posner will take the audience on a journey to provide some understanding of the important influence of forest and sea on human well-being.
Following the keynote, there will be a film screening and 2 short presentations (full agenda & descriptions):
- VIDEO INTRODUCTION & SCREENING: Interconnections (Rose Madrone, Director/Producer at Connectivity Project),
- SHORT: Red Knots: One Shared Home (Janet Essley, Artist, Creator of Red Knots: A Cultural Cartography of a Migratory Bird’s Annual Journey), and
