COASTWATCH ANNOUNCES WORKSHOPS ON SHORELINE SCIENCE

We have a special opportunity to offer CoastWatchers and Oregon Shores members this summer.  We have planned three intensive, three-day workshops on coastal science and natural history, led by coastal ecologist, Stewart Schultz and CoastWatch volunteer coordinator, Fawn Custer.

Workshops will be held in Bandon, Yachats, and Nehalem.  They will cover everything from tidepools and sandy beaches, to estuarine and ocean ecosystems, to marine mammals and birds. Each session will include field trips, indoor presentations and laboratory experiences (with some variation, depending on the weather).

The workshops ar open to the public, but the primary focus will be on providing CoastWatchers with training in many aspects of coastal ecology relevant to monitoring the shoreline. Matters of concern such as marine debris, invasive species, microplastics, and sea star wasting syndrome will also be discussed.

The three workshops will be held:

July 18-20, Bandon High School, 550 9th St., N.W., Bandon July 28-30, Yachats Commons, 441 Highway 101 N., Yachats Aug. 1-3, City of Nehalem Meeting Hall, 35900 8th St., Nehalem

Each workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the first day, and at 8:00 a.m. on the final two days, and will run until approximately 4:30.

Workshop fee will be $60 for those who are both CoastWatchers and Oregon Shores members, $75 for those who are either CoastWatchers or Oregon Shores members, and $100 for others (who are invited to join Oregon Shores on the registration site and take the discount).  Snacks will be provided; lunch is brown-bag.
Reservations can be made online at http://tinyurl.com/orshoresworkshop, or by linking through the CoastWatch website, http://oregonshores.org/coastwatch.php5.   It is also possible to reserve a place and pay by mail.  Checks made out to the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition can be sent to P.O. Box 33, Seal Rock, OR  97376.  Be sure to specify which workshop is intended.

Memory & More Specialized Support Group @ First Baptist Church
Apr 9 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

“Memory & More,” specialized support groups for those with memory loss and their care partners, meets on the second Thursday of the month from 10 – 11 a.m. at First Baptist Church, 3550 Fox Meadow Rd., Eugene, OR 97408.

The group for those with memory loss is overseen by Michael Pace, RN, and a team of volunteers. Appropriate activities, exercises, and light refreshments are included, and a brief “life history” of the person with memory loss is provided by their care partner.

The care partner group focuses on specific topics, with professionals from the Eugene/Springfield coming in to share their expertise. On Thurs., May 8, John Urness, elder law attorney, will discuss advance health care preparation, getting documents in place, and estate planning. Future topics include “Care for the Caregiver,” “Nutrition,” and “Ask the Nurse,” with Tamera Drinkwater, RN. Barbara Passarelli, Community Outreach Specialist from ElderCare Resources, facilitates the group.

Memory & More “is designed to help you navigate the new land you now inhabit” when dealing with memory loss, through prayer, education, and the emotional support of others. It is the brainchild of Julie Brown, First Baptist Church member and former care partner with her husband who had memory loss, and is overseen by Pastor Colin Halstead. About the program, Halstead says, “It’s great to see people supporting and encouraging each other in similar circumstances sharing the comfort and perspective that their faith brings them in their common experiences and unique relationships.”

For more information, please contact Renewal Ministries, First Baptist Church, 541.345.0341, ext. 226.
