Cascade Head Scenic Research Act 40th Celebration
Monday, July 21 at 4:30pm at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE HWY 101, Lincoln City, OR 97367
Forty years ago, the Cascade Head Scenic Research Act was passed by Congress. On July 21 at 4:30pm, a panel discussion will explore the artistic and cultural benefits that resulted from protecting this natural place located in the Cascade Head and Salmon River Estuary area. This event will be held at the Lincoln City Cultural Center.
Cascade Head is a place where forest, meadow, mountain, river and ocean meet. It seems apropos that many entities come together to protect this place. The Cascade Head area is designated a Scenic Research Area, a United States Bio Reserve, a US Experimental Forest, the Nature Conservancy maintains land and a hiking trail and most recently a Marine Reserve was placed off the coast. Needless to say this is a special place.
The panel consists of:
Executive Director of the Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council Catherine Pruett will lead a discussion with Sitka Center co-founder Frank Boyden, artist Deb DeWit, Project Director of the Spring Creek Project at OSU Charles Goodrich, Project Director of the Spring Creek Project at OSU, retired USDA Forest Service Ecologist Sarah Greene and Kami Ellingson from the USFS.
