On the Land Summer Outings

Summer on the land has concluded for 2018. Thanks for another great summer! We’ll be back with more outings starting in June 2019.


North Coast Land Conservancy’s On the Land program brings together staff and volunteer naturalists to offer guided outings on special lands in our service area (Clatsop, Tillamook and northern Lincoln counties), including some of our own habitat reserves that are not normally open to the public. Outings are free, but preregistration is required so we can keep groups small. Visit our Hands-On Stewardship page for year-round volunteer opportunities.

Our June 9 outing at Circle Creek Conservation Center is part of Get Outdoors Day, a statewide effort by the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts to encourage Oregonians of all ages to explore, discover and learn about Oregon’s special places.

Registration opens the first of the month prior to the month of the outing. For instance, registration for the June 9 outing opens May 1.

We ask that you not bring your dog on any of these group outings. Dogs are not allowed at NCLC habitat reserves.
