Anniversary walk

Stewardship Director Melissa Reich leads a walk down the boardwalk on the Wetlands Walk trail at Circle Creek Conservation Center.

In 2004 North Coast Land Conservancy purchased a 364-acre cattle ranch and former dairy farm tucked between the Necanicum River and Tillamook Head and set out to restore it to its native condition as an active floodplain and rainforest.

Circle Creek Conservation Center, as it is now known, has since become NCLC’s “living room,” open to the public daily, with walking trails and regular conservation-related events.

On July 13, the conservancy will hold its fourth annual Summer Picnic at the Barn. The public is invited to bring a picnic and lawn chairs or a blanket to this free event and enjoy guided walks, live music, a silent auction and more. Music and picnicking start at 2:30; guided trail walks start at 4:30 p.m. For the complete schedule and other details, visit NCLCtrust.org/event/picnic.

Circle Creek Conservation Center is at the end of Rippet Road at the south end of Seaside. Turn west onto Rippet Road and follow it to the two barns at the end of the road. It is open to the public daily, dawn to dusk, conditions permitting.
