North Coast Land Conservancy On the Land Nature Walks

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 upcoming On the Land programs:
