WHERE DID ALL THE SAND GO?
Newport Surfrider will present it’s virtual January Chapter meeting on Thursday, January 14th at 6:30 pm. This will be a discussion of how and why beaches change with the movement of sand and how this affects beach use. The panel includes Jonathan Allan, Coastal Geomorphologist for the state of Oregon, and Jay Senewald, Ocean Shore Coordinator for Oregon Parks and Recreation.
Jonathan will give an overview of the coastal processes that form our beaches, and specifically, how and why Agate Beach has changed over the last few years.
Jay will explain the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department’s responsibility for managing our ocean shore and how Oregon Administrative Rules guide the agency including the need for permits for shoreline alterations and the process for public participation.
There will be plenty of time for questions after the presentations. For free tickets register at:
