ASTORIA — North Coast Land Conservancy is working on its biggest project ever: conservation of 3,500 acres of forestland above Oswald West State Park to benefit people, plants and wildlife.

What is the right amount of public access for this property, if any?

The Thursday, Nov. 8, Nature Matters talk features Land Conservancy Executive Director Katie Voelke in an open-ended discussion about how to balance the needs of people, plants and wildlife in conserved lands on the Oregon Coast.

The 7 p.m. presentation takes place at the Fort George Lovell Showroom, 1483 Duane St. The free event is open to the public. Doors open at 6 p.m. for attendees to purchase dinner or beverages.

Nature Matters, a conversation about the intersection of nature and culture, takes place on the second Thursday of each month, October through May.
