As part of Clallam County Reads, the North Olympic Library System will host talks on sea otters in Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary at all branches.
Jessie Hale, a PhD student at the University of Washington and recipient of a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship, will discuss the history of sea otters in Washington state, as well as her research investigating what sea otters eat and what it tells us about the health of the population.
Presentations are scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., and at 2 p.m. the same day at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.
A community-wide shared reading experience, Clallam County Reads offers free, educational, and community-building events and programs during October and November related to the official selection, “The Soul of an Octopus” by Sy Montgomery.
