On the Land has wrapped up for the 2014 season. Check back in the spring for more great programs!
North Coast Land Conservancy’s on the land program brings together staff and volunteer naturalists to offer a series of free guided outings on our habitat reserves that are not normally open to the public. In 2014, outings included 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 also offered new perspectives on some 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. Paddle trips included visits to Skipanon Forest, Nehalem River, and John Day River Marsh, east of Astoria.
