The 12 Days of Earth Day started yesterday with the Fire Mountain School children welcoming the Tufted Puffins (see below) to Haystack Rock. There was even a things "to do" write up in The National Geographic Traveler issue about the greeting.....along with a wedding happening in London!
Last evening Paul Jepson, a professor of environmental and molecular toxicology, and director of the integrated Plant Protection Center at Oregon State University spoke about pollination biology. Pollination has been a key concern of his....the plight of wild and domesticated bees.
Ed Johnson who attended the talk walked away feeling that there was alot that we, in Cannon Beach, could do about encouraging the health and well being of the bees in our area.
Come to Cannon Beach and join in on the celebration.
