On Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at 4:00 p.m., join the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum and the North Coast Land Conservancy as they welcome Dr. Lindsay Aylesworth with ODFW’s Marine Reserve Program. Lindsay will be presenting cool research results from monitoring in our near shore waters, and where the program is heading with the passing of House Bill 4132 in the most recent legislative session. Following Lindsay’s presentation, attendees are invited to stop by the Cannon Beach Gallery to view their latest art exhibit, “The Reserve Inspiration” featuring artwork that is inspired by the beauty and diversity of Oregon’s five Marine Reserves.

She has worked for over 16 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.
