Tide Pools – Learn About What You See

tidepoolLincoln City will be offering “clinics” about the creatures that you may find when you are exploring the tide pools in the area.   Periodically from March thru July, you can join Dr. Chuck at the 15th Street Beach Access where he will provide a brief lecture and then take you on a tour of the tidepools where you can see sea creatures like starfish, anemones, crabs.   Each of the clinics will last about 2 hours.

Make sure you bring some gloves, and depending on weather you may want raingear and sunscreen as well.   It’s also nice to have rubber boots to trudge around in the water.

Spring Break on the Oregon Coast…

ca and or 012Spring Break is a great time to spend some time with your family on the Oregon Coast. There is a great article HERE that lists over 30 things that you can do while visiting Lincoln City, Oregon that would cost little or nothing for you to do.

It’s real easy to get the feeling that when we go on vacation, or for a day trip on our days off, that we have to go go go and spend spend spend.  This list is proof that this is NOT necessarily the case.   Highlights from this list include:

  • Visit the North Lincoln County Historical Museum.
  • Walk the Beach
  • Whale Watch (March and April are good times)

  • Explore a Tide Pool During Low Tide
