Katie Voelke will join us from the North Coast Land Conservancy. In 1985 a group of people from Cannon Beach, Astoria, and points between – all veterans of the environmental battles of the 1970s and early’80s – assembled to consider a new way to approach conservation on the Oregon Coast. They established a cooperative approach, working with willing landowners to conserve key pieces of habitat rather than filing lawsuit after lawsuit prompted by the decline of one endangered species after another. Katie will talk about how this approach has been successful in conserving our lands for generations to come.
