Marine Reserves Presentation as part of the 12 Days of Earth Day in Cannon Beach - 04/16/11 07:02 PM
Nadia Gardner , local conservation planner, discussed marine reserves around the world and then narrowed the discussion to Oregon. A marine reserve is an area closed to fishing and other extractive activities. The objective is to conserve marine habitat and biodiversity and provide opportunities for marine research. There are also Marine Protected Areas which would allow specific extractive activities such as crabbing or salmon fishing. There are two designated pilot sites: one being on the central coast north of Newport at Otter Rock and the other one on the south coast south of Port Orford called Redfish Rocks.

Cannon Beach Sculpture Without Walls morphs into The Public Art Program 2011 - 04/16/11 06:14 PM
For five years now, Cannon Beach has had a very successful Sculpture Without Walls Program (see last year's blog). As a result we now have six exceptional sculptures sprinkled throughout town. This year, the committee wanted to take it a step further by moving the focus to a particular project within the city. So...the fence along 3rd Street will become an expression of art. Pictured here from left to right are: Leslie Garvin, committee member, Eloise Damrosch, Executive Director for The Regional Arts & Culture Council, Terri Hopkins, Director of the Art Gym, Marylhurst University, Bonnie Laing-Malcomson, Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Northwest Art and Rich Mays, Cannon (2 comments)

In Gearhart...the tennis court has disappeared! - 04/11/11 05:15 PM
If you drive west on Pacific Way towards the ocean, at the stop sign, look to your right and there is this giant hole where the Public Tennis Court has been for decades. There will be a new water and water treatment system. The Gearhart Community is excited because when this is completed in 2012 their water will cost alot less. They have been purchasing water from the city of Warrenton and the expense has encouraged the town to get their own. To the west of this hole is a huge sand hill where the sand from this hole has gone for the (0 comments)
