Weekend Field Trip

from 246.00

We’re planning a 2.5 day excursion to the Oregon coast that will be an excellent way for you to learn about the cultural and natural history of our region and have lots of fun. The Oregon coast is famous for its big surf, spectacular scenery and marine life. We will be based on Yaquina Bay, in Newport, Oregon, in walking distance to the Hatfield Marine Center, the Oregon Coast Aquarium and the marina.

Our dates coincide with exceptionally low morning tides, which will give us the chance to see remains of an intertidal wood stake fish weir and wildlife in tide pools.
