McMenamins History Pub 
Co-sponsored by Oregon Historical Society

Oregon’s sea otters have held a special role in the cultural, spiritual, and economic life of coastal Native American communities for generations. Over a century of zealous hunting and trading of sea otters, by Native people and Euro-Americans, eliminated the species from Oregon over 100 years ago. Join us for an illustrated history of this ecological keystone species.
