SEASIDE — The North Coast Land Conservancy is offering two opportunities this month to learn about local wildlife.

Ecologist Mike Patterson, who has observed the migration of species for decades on the North Coast, will share his thoughts about nature’s timeless pattern of movement during a lecture at the Seaside Library.

Sponsored by the conservancy and the Necanicum Watershed Council, the lecture, “Listening to the Land: Mysteries of Migration,” will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

For more information about the lecture, contact Melyssa Graeper, Necanicum Watershed Council coordinator, at (503) 717-1458.

The land conservancy’s Saturday Morning Stewardship program is planned from 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 26, at the Reed Ranch property on the Clatsop Plains.

This former prairie, part of the vibrant Neacoxie Wildlife Corridor, is home to many native species. 

Those participating the day’s project will help create migratory bird habitat by installing native plants that will grow into dense shrub thickets. Bring gloves, sturdy boots, rain gear and water. Tools will be provided. There will be no access to public restrooms. 

For more information about Saturday Morning Stewardship program, contact Celeste Coulter, North Coast Land Conservancy Stewardship director, at (503) 738-9126.
