The Friends of Haystack Rock group is extended its usual winter-to-spring speaker series into the summer this year.  On Wednesday, July 14, 7 p.m., the featured speaker will be Shawn Stephenson of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, speaking on “Tufted Puffin Research Studies of the Oregon Coast.”  (The puffin population that nests on Haystack Rock is of course one of the Friends’ primary concerns.)  The event is free and open to all.

Stephenson has been a Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service since 1989.  He worked in the Fish and Wildlife Enhancement branch in Salt Lake City, Utah conducting contaminant studies for four years; Migratory Bird Management in Anchorage, Alaska conducting seabird studies for 15 years; and since then has worked at the Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex in Newport.
