“North Coast Otters – Merging Citizen Art and Science” – Presented by Jeff Black, HSU Wildlife Professor

 

Come hear the progress in preparing North Coast Otters – public arts initiative launching summer 2020, when an educational Otter Art trail will play host to 100 Otter Art sculptures at sites throughout the North Coast, from Mendocino to Del Norte.  The Otter Art will be displayed at shops, restaurants, visitor centers, and galleries and then auctioned off at the end of the summer to raise valuable funds for HSU student internships with the many grassroots watershed programs in our community.

The project’s goal is to build community on the theme “clean water and healthy habitats where we live and play” with the charismatic river otter as the ‘poster child’. Some of the otter art will portray healthy habitats, while others will show otters simply having fun outside! We’d love to hear from artists, sponsors, and business owners willing to host an Artsy Otter.
