On the Land Summer Outings

ON THE LAND OUTINGS HAVE CONCLUDED FOR SUMMER 2017. Check back in spring 2018 to see what we have planned for that summer. Visit our Hands-On Stewardship page for opportunities to get outside with us year-round.

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 offered June through August and are free, but preregistration is required so we can keep groups small. Registration opens the first of the month prior to the month of the outing–for instance, registration for a June 8 event 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.
