The Winter Speaker Series at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center hosts Briana Goodwin, Oregon field manager for the Surfrider Foundation, for a talk about beach water quality on Saturday, Jan. 11, 11 a.m. at the visitor center (2400 U.S. Hwy 101, about three miles south of Yachats).

Goodwin will describe Surfrider’s water quality monitoring program, which tests the ocean water washing our beaches.  She will focus particularly on testing at Oregon’s marine reserves.

The event is free, but a Northwest Forest Pass, Oregon Coast Passport, federal recreation pass, or $5 day-use fee is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and at some trailheads and day use sites.
