'Stories of Creatures and People of the North Coast' is next in King Range Lecture Series

A presentation celebrating the beauty of the North Coast will be featured in “Stories of Creatures and People of the North Coast,” a free talk by local storyteller Ali Freedlund.

The lecture is Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m., at the Healy Senior Center, 456 Briceland Rd., in Redway.  It is part of the annual winter lecture series offered by the Bureau of Land Management’s King Range National Conservation Area and the Lost Coast Interpretive Association.

Freedlund has lived on the north coast for over 30 years. She joined the North Coast Storytellers about five years ago when she began writing her own stories celebrating the beauty of the North Coast and its creatures.

Through these stories, Freedland says she hopes to empower all ages to love and appreciate this place and each other.

She works for the Mattole Restoration Council but she loves to perform or share stories when she can. She has worked with Human Nature Theatre Productions of Petrolia, and recently worked with a collective of women for the show "Women of the Northwest."

The King Range National Conservation Area is part of the BLM’s National Landscape Conservation System. Additional information on the area’s natural resources and recreation opportunities is available at
