The first event in the World of Haystack Rock Lecture Series produced by the Friends of Haystack Rock is coming up Wednesday, Nov. 13, 7 p.m. in the Cannon Beach Library (131 N. Hemlock St.).

The topic is “Conservation status, population trends, and natural history of the Tufted Puffin.”  The speaker is Scott Pearson, a senior research scientist at Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife where he supervises the west-side research team.  Dr. Pearson’s research is focused primarily on assessing wildlife population status and trends, diet, habitat use and quality, evaluating the effectiveness of conservation efforts, and identifying mechanisms responsible for population declines.  He is currently studying several seabird and shorebird species, including the Tufted Puffin, Marbled Murrelet, Rhinoceros Auklet, and Western Snowy Plover.

Friends of Haystack Rock is a nonprofit organization which promotes the preservation and protection of the intertidal life and birds that inhabit the Marine Garden and Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge at Haystack Rock.
