Contact: Kayla Fermin, 503-861-4444

Samara Haver is a researcher at Oregon State University where she uses underwater microphones to study ocean sounds. Sound in marine environments is generated by many types of marine life, natural phenomena, and man-made sources, such as whales, sea ice, and vessel traffic. In this presentation, Samara will explain how she and her colleagues listen to the ocean, and what they have learned by eavesdropping in underwater ecosystems all around the United States.

This free event is online. The 7 p.m. presentation takes place February 11th online via Facebook Live on Fort George Brewery's Facebook page.

Nature Matters, a lively conversation about the intersection of nature and culture, takes place on the second Thursday of each month from October through May. Nature Matters is hosted by Lewis and Clark National Historical Park in partnership with the North Coast Watershed Association, the Lewis & Clark National Park Association, and the Fort George Brewery + Public House.
