Our guest speaker Josie Iselin is a local award-winning author, photographer, and designer of several books including Seashells, Beach Stones, and most recently, The Curious World of Seaweed. She is also co-director of a collaborative known as Above/Below, which seeks to elevate the level of recognition of our undersea kelp forests to the same level that is afforded the forests on land.

After the meeting, we'll have refreshments on the patio of the community center, and if we're lucky, a paddle afterward! Please sign up if you plan to attend the meeting so we can get an accurate food count.
