With mountain summits rising above 3,000 feet as close as a mile from the shoreline, the region North Coast Land Conservancy calls the
Coastal Edge, between Tillamook Head and Nehalem Bay, is an unusually compressed, biogeographically concentrated ecosystem, unlike that anywhere else on the Oregon Coast. Part of the Coastal Edge shoreline lies within Oswald West State Park, which is the gateway to Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, the newest of Oregon’s near-shore areas set aside to protect the ocean’s biological diversity. Join geologist Tom Horning on a geologic journey of the Coastal Edge.

TOM HORNING grew up in Seaside and earned his master’s degree in geology at Oregon State University. He returned to Seaside in 1994 and opened Horning Geosciences, a geological consulting service. Tom joined the board of NCLC in 1996 and has been actively involved with the land conservancy ever since.
