Speaker series ‘Edge of the Sea’ talk reset for Thursday

PORT ANGELES — Ian Miller, coastal hazard specialist with the Washington Sea Grant, will present “The Edge of the Sea: Scales of Change on Olympic Coast Beaches” at 7 p.m. Thursday.

The talk will be at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

Part of Olympic National Park’s Perspectives Winter Speaker Series, Miller’s presentation was originally scheduled for Feb. 12 but was postponed because of weather.

He will discuss his recent studies on Rialto and Kalaloch beaches and investigations of sea level change on the Olympic Coast.

The Perspectives Winter Speaker Series is sponsored by Olympic National Park, the Friends of Olympic National Park and the North Olympic Library System.

Other presentations in the series include:

 7 p.m. April 9 — “A Witness to Change.” Janis Burger, an interpreter at Olympic National Park’s Hurricane Ridge, will share photos and experiences gleaned throughout a 37-year career as a seasonal biological technician and longtime park interpreter.
