Haystack Rock Awareness
Haystack Rock is an iconic feature in the Pacific Northwest
On this episode of Sea Change, Jenna Valente welcomes Melissa Keyser to the show to discuss her work managing the Haystack Rock Awareness Program in Cannon Beach, Oregon. A popular tourist destination, the monolithic rock is adjacent to the beach and accessible by foot at low tide. The Haystack Rock tide pools are home to a wide variety intertidal animals, and is a nesting site for many sea birds, including terns and puffins. In addition to her work with Haystack Rock, Melissa was recently appointed by Gov. Kate Brown to serve on the Oregon Ocean Policy Advisory Council.
