Summer On The Land

North Coast Land Conservancy is again collaborating with staff and volunteer naturalists to offer a series of free guided outings on our habitat reserves that are not normally open to the public. This year’s outings include favorite sites such as Circle Creek Habitat Reserve and Stanley Marsh in Seaside, as well as to new sites such as Clear Lake and Skipanon Forest in Warrenton.  We are also offering new perspectives on what may be familiar landscapes: the impact of the berm removal and floodplain reconnection (and two episodes of flooding) at Circle Creek, for example, and Stanley Marsh after dark. This year’s paddle trips visit Skipanon Forest and John Day River Marsh, east of Astoria.

Most walks are on rough, uneven ground and are not appropriate for strollers or for people who have difficulty walking. Dogs are not allowed on any NCLC properties.

To keep groups small, preregistration is required.  Click the links below for details and to sign up online.
