Haystack Rock program
marks 30th anniversary
HRAP from Page 1A
A new photo exhibit, on
display through June 18 at
the Cannon Beach History
Center & Museum, com-
memorates the milestone and
tells the story of the program,
whose mission is to teach
locals and visitors about the
ecosystem of Haystack Rock
as a means of protecting it.
“You can put in conser-
vation laws and regulations,
and try to protect certain ar-
eas,” Program Coordinator
Samantha Ferber said, but
“they’re just not effective
if you don’t have the public
education and awareness of
these things.”
In 2014, over the course
of 193 days on the beach,
the HRAP team made con-
tact with 88,794 people at
Haystack Rock — averaging
about 95 contacts per hour —
and 98 volunteers donated
a total of 3,872 hours to the
program, according to Fer-
ber.
In addition, the program
hosted — for free — 62
school and adult groups at
Haystack Rock with a total
RI SDUWLFLSDQWV D ¿J-
ure that Melissa Keyser, the
HRAP education coordina-
tor, said she hopes will con-
tinue to grow.
“Some of the students,
they would never get to have
an experience like that unless
it was facilitated through a
school, especially the Port-
land schools we work with,”
Ferber said. “It’s a good op-
portunity — and a unique
one — for them to come out
and not only learn about the
marine environment but actu-
ally experience it.”
Humble origins
The program began infor-
mally in 1983 as a personal
project of Neal Maine and his
wife, Karen Maine.
While the Maines were
down at Haystack Rock and
ca n n on
bea ch
GAZ E T T E
Neal was taking photos, a
group of young visitors ap-
proached them and asked
about rock’s history and ecol-
ogy, Neal Maine said.
Later that day, Karen
asked Neal, then a biolo-
gy teacher at Seaside High
School, to teach her about
Haystack Rock so that the
two of them could enlighten
future visitors.
“If (people) don’t really
know how it works, then it’s
just a target for spitballs,”
Neal Maine said.
At the next low tide, the
couple left the camera equip-
ment behind and returned in-
stead with aquariums, binoc-
ulars and a plan to share their
knowledge of, and passion
for, Haystack Rock, Neal
Maine wrote.
“People were so appre-
ciative and interested that we
went back the next day, and
the next day,” he said. “It got
a little out of hand.” Shortly
thereafter, a group of their
Cannon Beach friends joined
them.
Before long, the concept
caught on, and the group dis-
covered that the city of Can-
non Beach shared their en-
thusiasm for a environmental

Then-Mayor

Mark Lindberg threw their
support behind the project,
and, in 1984, interested en-
vironmental agencies met to
discuss it.

incorporated the program.
A sense of ownership
Neal Maine is proud that
the modest awareness pro-
gram he founded with Karen
— who passed away in 2006
after a 20-year battle with
leukemia — has become
an integral part of Cannon
Beach’s ecological ethic.
It is important that cities
know where they live in re-
lation to the natural world,
he said, and that communi-
ty members have a sense of
ownership toward the natural
resources in their midst.
Since Haystack Rock is
a major tourist destination, a
big part of the HRAP team’s
job is to prevent people from
collecting marine animals
and crushing them under-
foot while traipsing over the
rocks.
“If we weren’t there, I can
see, very easily, there would
be nothing there in a very
short time for anybody to
see,” said Alan Quimby, one
of two lead staff interpreters.
Ferber said that HRAP
would not have been able
to continue for three full de-
cades without the ceaseless
support of the city and the
North Coast community,
LQFOXGLQJ WKH QRQSUR¿W RU-
ganization Friends of Hay-
stack Rock, which provides
guidance and support to the
program.
She has come to view
HRAP as a “vessel to open
people’s eyes to the natural
world, to make them under-
stand that, if you look closer
at these intricate systems,
that, really, they’re amazing,
how they work perfectly to-
gether,” she said. “And it’s
also important to try to make
them realize that we’re part
of that intricate system as
well.”

sons with HRAP, Ferber said,
“There’s no greater joy that
I get than when a child gets
happy about an anemone or a
hermit crab.”
Nala Cardillo, a former
HRAP coordinator and
whose sister recently had a
baby, said, “I would love for
that child to experience over
the next 30 years what many
children of all ages have ex-
perienced at Haystack Rock
over the last 30 years.”
