The mission of the Yachats Academy of Arts & Sciences is to provide educational and entertainment opportunities for people on the central Oregon coast. Sponsored by the Friends of the Yachats Commons, we encourage the residents of the village of Yachats, Oregon to work with Academy board members to organize those events that they judge to be most enjoyable.
A fourth generation Oregonian, Stacie Smith has published dozens of poems and a book. Her work explores the natural world and our intimate, imperiled bond with our habitat, Earth. Stacie will present poems and other artwork about the natural world, including inner and outer landscapes, plant and animal life and our connection to it all.
