Join us Wednesday, January 11th at 7:00 p.m. at the Cannon Beach Library for the World of Haystack Rock Library Lecture Series. These are recurring lectures with different speakers and topics that are held on the second Wednesday of every month, from November to May. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Marine Reserves Program Staff will present, “10th Anniversary of Oregon’s Marine Reserves: What Have We Learned?”

Oregon’s marine reserve program began in 2012 with the establishment of the Otter Rock and Redfish Rocks marine reserve sites. Three more sites, including the Cape Falcon site on the north coast, were established in 2014 and 2016.  Now, years later, the State is looking back at what’s been learned, and is considering how to adapt the program going forward. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife staff will present the program’s highlights, with a focus on ecological research. Come learn more about Oregon’s marine reserves.

Lindsay Aylesworth is the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s newly appointed Marine Reserves Program Leader based in Newport, OR. Lindsay has been serving in the interim role since June 2022 and prior to that served as the Marine Reserves Ecological Project Leader for 5 years. She has worked for over 13 years at the interface of science, policy, and marine resource management issues. Prior to coming to ODFW, Lindsay worked on a variety of marine issues, including international policy and trade of marine species, bycatch in Pacific Island fisheries, endangered species research, and coral reef ecology. Lindsay received her doctoral degree from the University of British Columbia, where she studied data-poor marine species in Southeast Asia. She has a Master’s degree in coastal environmental management from Duke University, and served as a Fulbright Scholar in Brazil. Lindsay brings with her excellent communication skills and interdisciplinary experience in social-ecological systems.
