On July 12th our Portland Chapter was lucky enough to have Kaety Jacobson of Oregon Sea Grant stop by our monthly meeting to share her stories and experiences as a Newport native and lifelong seafood consumer/ student of her (fishy) environment. The daughter of a commercial fishermen, Kaety grew up eating fresh catch-of-the day fish and developed an almost innate sense of dealing with seafood at all stages of the cycle from catching to selling to bartering for to cleaning to cooking and eventually to studying the community and trends as part of her profession.
On a calm grey morning in early July (July 9th to be exact), 32 volunteers gathered in Oswald West State Park for a few hours of good old-fashioned beach cleaning, followed by a bbq at the lovely and hospitable Lower Nehalem Community Trust’s Alder Creek Farm.
The Portland Chapter is proud to announce a collaboration between our chapter, 94/7 Alternative Portland and Alameda Brewing Co., to produce a special beer – the Alternator IPA! The Alternator IPA is a sessionable IPA brewed locally by Alameda Brewing, with a light body and huge tropical hop flavor making it prefect for taking to the beach, mountains or your favorite swimming hole this summer.
