October 6, 2012 Rock the Beach 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk at Cannon Beach, OR

September 16th, 2012 by insideout
Cannon Beach OR Run/Walk 2012

The 2012 Rock the Beach Run/Walk in Oregon features a beautiful course right on Cannon Beach.

Saturday ~ 9:30 am to 1:00 pm

A run should be scenic and this second annual run/walk on Cannon Beach is exceptional. With the Pacific Ocean stretching into the western horizon and the bluffs and mountains framing the beach’s edge, it is truly a gorgeous place to run or stroll. The 10K loop will be both beautiful and challenging with half the course on the beach and the other half on pavement. The 5K is all beach so runners, casual walkers and dogs (on leashes, please) will all enjoy the sand and surf.

Registration for students is $25 and $50 for adults. The registration fee includes a high quality T-shirt, plus BBQ lunch and live music at the lovely and comfortable Cannon Beach Chamber Community Hall at 2nd and Spruce. It’s all for a good cause–proceeds benefit the Cannon Beach Preschool and Children’s Center (CBPCC). The CBPCC is non profit 501(c)(3) which has been providing quality child care and enriching educational opportunities since 1977. So get out there and run/walk to help local kids!

For folks watching the Rock the Beach race, it will be a nice day out on the beach. Cheer on the runners and walkers and take a wander around the quaint town of Cannon Beach.

The race starts near Second Street, in downtown Cannon Beach right on the beach. For more information, call (503) 436-1040. Links to register online and a full route map are at CBchildren.org. Note: Registration closes on Thursday October 4, 11:59 PM PST. Be sure to register as soon as you can before the event fills up!

North Coast Land Conservancy On the Land Nature Walks

September 2nd, 2012 by insideout

Cannon Beach OR ViewOur Cannon Beach B&B is proud to support the efforts of the North Coast Land Conservancy (NCLC).* This Northwest Oregon Coast organization, as their mission statement says, works to “conserve and protect land in perpetuity for its ecological and cultural values.” As part of their good work, the NCLC fosters a sense of stewardship for the land with fun, educational programs. Some of our favorites are their “On the Land” walks.

This program a great way to experience the birds, animals, forests and waters of Oregon’s North Coast. As an added bonus, these guided walks, often in pristine protected areas, are all free. You do have to register in advance, though. This keeps the groups small and intimate, plus there’s less impact on the lands and waters visited.

A knowledgeable guide always leads the way and you can learn so much about the ecology of our region. It’s also a beautiful scenic tour of some of the most beautiful areas on the North Oregon coast.

These are some of the the upcoming On the Land programs:

Ecology Walk: Floodplain Restoration in Action
@ Circle Creek Conservation Center, Seaside
This will take place on Friday, September 14, from 10 am to noon and will be lead by Katie Voelke.

Foraging in the Forest
@ Ecola Creek Forest Reserve, Cannon Beach
Lead by Carla Cole, this engaging program will happen on Friday, October 19, 10 am to noon.

Amphibian Adventure: Frogs, Salamanders and More!
@ Circle Creek Conservation Center, Seaside
Mike Patterson will lead this walk about some of our favorite local amphibians on October 20, 10 am to noon.

Be sure to wear good walking shoes and to dress for the changeable weather of the Pacific Northwest coast. You’l also want to bring something to drink, snacks, binoculars and a camera.

Arch Cape Inn and Retreat is in the process of changing its mission statement and daily living activities in order to become eligible for green certification. A particular emphasis for us focuses on protecting and preserving the water quality of our local area.
In an effort to keep our water clean, water that surrounds us everywhere, we are making  changes in our habits. One such change that is easy to do is to use ordinary vinegar in a spray bottle as a surface cleaning agent.
