WORLD OCEANS DAY!
Oregon State University will celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8 with a special Science Pub featuring marine videos, a panel of expert guests, trivia, music, art and a children’s book reading.
The free, virtual event will focus on Heceta Bank, a biodiversity and fishing hotspot about 35 miles off Cape Perpetua on the Oregon coast. Oregon State scientists have conducted research on the bank for more than 60 years to understand how ocean processes set the stage for Oregon’s fisheries and coastal ecosystem. The science pub will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and can be viewed for free by anyone.The event will be broadcast on Facebook Live and YouTube Live. Registration is required and can be completed at https://beav.es/4bi. Details about how to access the talk will be sent via email.
