Riding the Next Wave: The Future of Oregon’s Coast
Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Portland

When: Tuesday, Nov. 13 | 7 p.m.
Where: Multnomah County Building Board Room, 501 SE Hawthorne Boulevard, Portland
What: In July, the League of Women Voters of Oregon completed a two-year study of issues and perspective related to the Oregon coastline. The study, "Coastal and Nearshore Oregon: Using and Protecting Our Natural Resources," is a non-biased report targeted to a general audience interested in understanding and protecting out coastline and is available online. As follow-up to the study, the League of Women Voters of Portland is sponsoring a public meeting on Nov. 13 featuring a panel discussion.

Citizens across Oregon are asked to make decisions that impact the coastline, but often do not understand the economic and natural resources issues of the coastal area. Join us for an evening with an expert panel that will discuss forging a balance of technology and natural resources. The panel will look at ways to make communities thrive. Discussion will center on marine reserves, wave energy, ocean science and the coastal economy. Panel:

  • Susan Allen, Pew Environmental Group, Director  Our Ocean, Marine conservation representative on Oregon’s Territorial Sea Plan
  • Robin Hartman, Ocean Program Director for Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition, member of the Oregon Wave Energy Trust board of directors, chairing the Trust’s ecological committee
  • Jim Martin, Conservation Director for the Berkley Conservation Institute, a branch of Pure Fishing, 30 years with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife
  • Brian N. Tissot,
