CANNON BEACH — The first talk in The World of Haystack Rock, a Library Lecture Series, is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 12.

Samantha Zeman, research assistant at Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport will present “Zooplankton: Indicators of ocean change.”

The lecture series is held 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month through May at Cannon Beach Library, 131 N. Hemlock St.

Zeman works in an ocean-monitoring program that collects oceanographic data on biweekly research cruises. She will discuss the changes in zooplankton along the Oregon Coast and what the changes mean.

The series is sponsored by the library and the Friends of Haystack Rock, a nonprofit focused on keeping Haystack Rock healthy and thriving in cooperation with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program and other partnerships.
