Summer On The Land


We are finalizing plans for the 2015 season. Check back in May for the complete list of programs!

North Coast Land Conservancy’s On the Land program brings together staff and volunteer naturalists to offer free guided outings on or near several of our habitat reserves that are not normally open to the public. This year’s outings will include visits to Whale Cove south of Depoe Bay, Whalen Island in Sand Lake near Pacific City, and Butterfield Fen northeast of Gearhart, as well to favorite sites in the Seaside-Warrenton area. 

The outings are free, but preregistration is required so we can keep groups small. This year, registration will be staggered by month: for example, registration for July outings will open on June 1. Join our e-mail list to receive reminders about these and other events.
