What: The Estuarium and the Surfrider Capitol Chapter presents Robert Steelquist, author of the new book, “The Northwest Coastal Explorer.”

“When gardeners travel, we want to see … plants. But that doesn’t mean gardens, necessarily, as brought home by a new, photo-filled guidebook to our magnificent coastline from Northern California to British Columbia. Steelquist, a naturalist and environmental educator, arranged the book by habitat. From estuaries to coastal forests, he details the birds, animals, sea life and plants you’ll find within each. Learn how European beach grasses came to monopolize the Oregon dunes, and the challenges faced by that monarch of the coastal forests, western red cedar (Thuja plicata). Plenty of quality photos and the interweaving of habitat, plant life, and creatures make this book an inviting guide to our unique coastal ecosystem.”

Books ($24.95) and signing available
