This webinar is in partnership with Lincoln City Audubon and is the second of a three part series called, Beyond the Beach.
The panel includes Dave Fox, Roy Lowe, and Dick Vander Schaaf and is introduced by Kent Doughty, Audubon Society of Lincoln City.
Oregon’s legendary 1967 Beach Bill provides the public with free and uninterrupted public access and use to all of Oregon’s beaches along its 364 mile coastline. Many beaches can be accessed from a dazzling array of state parks extending from Fort Stevens State Park at the mouth of the Columbia River south to Crissey Field State Recreation Site near the California border. In addition to providing beach access, these parks protect upland natural resources.
But how well protected is the rest of Oregon’s shoreline and offshore islands? While the offshore islands are protected and beach access is assured, much of Oregon’s shoreline below the ordinary mean high tide line lacks site specific protection measures.
Learn about the variety of marine designation types along the Oregon coast. Why do we need these designated marine sites? Find out where they are located and how to enjoy them in a responsible manner so their bountiful resources are available for generations to come.
