Open House Featuring Guest Speakers
April 17 @ 2:00 PM - 7:00 PMFREE
Join us in celebrating Earth Month with a spring open house at Clean Ocean Access on April 17th from 2:00 to 7:00PM. The COA office will be open for any and all visitors who want to stop in meet the staff and learn more about our work and ways to get involved in the community.
This spring, our open house will also highlight ‘Sea Change,’ an environmentally conscious art exhibit on display at our office through the month of April featuring local artists Scott Lapham and Joan Wyand. Visitors can view the art on display and purchase pieces from the exhibit with 30% of proceeds benefiting COA. Scott and Joan will be at the open house to speak more about their exhibit and the inspiration behind the artwork.
The open house event features special guest speaker Jonathan Dahlem as part of our ongoing Ocean Science Speaker Series. Jon is an environmental sociologist and PhD student in Washington State University’s Department of Sociology. His work focuses on understanding human socio-political inertia toward urgent environmental problems such as biodiversity loss and climate change. Jon also holds MA’s in Sociology and English Literature. He is currently completing a book on the social components of Island Marble Butterfly conservation, which will constitute his PhD dissertation.
