The public is invited to a talk by Greg Krutzikowsky at the upcoming MidCoast Watersheds Council meeting to hear about a new resource for learning about the fish and wildlife in our nearshore waters.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife recently updated both the Oregon Conservation Strategy and the Oregon Nearshore Strategy, that focuses on species dependent on the marine environment. Now these in-depth resources are available to the public in an online interactive format.
The new online tool is designed to engage Oregonians in conservation of our fish, wildlife and their habitats. This site brings 300 pages of text to life with pictures, videos, and interactive features to search for topics of interest about Oregon’s fish and wildlife species, their habitats, and many of the conservation issues they face. Greg’s presentation will introduce the new website with a focus on the Oregon Nearshore Strategy.
Greg Krutzikowsky earned a Bachelor’s degree in marine biology and a Master’s degree in oceanography. He has worked as an educator, research scientist, boat captain, and fishery manager. His work has taken him to many parts of the North and South Pacific, the North Atlantic and the Arctic oceans. Greg works at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife currently, where his work focuses on the conservation and sustainable use of Oregon’s living marine resources and their habitats.
We hope you can join us on November 3rd, 6:30pm in the Central Lincoln PUD public meeting room on Highway 101 in Newport across from Safeway. Plenty of parking.
