Ian Miller, Coastal Hazard Specialist with the Washington Sea Grant, presents “The Edge of the Sea: Scales of Change on Olympic Coast Beaches” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, 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 inclement weather.

• 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9 — “A Witness to Change”

Janis Burger, an interpreter at Olympic National Park’s Hurricane Ridge, will share photos and experiences gleaned over a 37-year career as a seasonal biological technician and longtime park interpreter.
