UPDATE: Access Fee at Winchester Bay – Rally at Park Advisory Board meeting 5/15

Oswald West believed the that public should have free and unfettered access to Oregon’s beaches. On February 13, 1913, Governor West signed landmark legislation that set aside Oregon’s beaches for public use:

“The shore of the Pacific Ocean, between ordinary high tide and extreme low tide, and from the Columbia River on the north to the Oregon and California State line on the south, is hereby declared a public highway and shall forever remain open as such to the public.”

While the beaches remain public land, access to them is often tricky or comes at a cost. Douglas County recently announced they will be charging for access at Winchester Bay, the only free and easily accessible beach access point in Douglas County and for 25 miles in either direction. Read their press release here.

Take action to keep this beach access free:

Friday 5/15 – Douglas County Park Advisory Board:  Surfrider will be rallying to Roseburg to speak to the Park Advisory Board about the impacts of a day use fee at Winchester Bay Parking Lot #1, on 5/15 @ 9am.  We want to pack the room, so if you are interested contact Ryan Cruse.

Surfrider and Lincoln County partner with Japanese researchers on marine debris

In a project collaboration between Japanese Researchers, NOAA, Surfrider Foundation and Lincoln County, a streaming camera for monitoring marine debris was recently installed along Oregon’s central coast. The project began late last year when the NOAA Marine Debris Program through a collaboration with PICES (North Pacific Marine Science Organization), reached out to Surfrider here in Oregon to help identify potential sites and local partners.

The Many Dimensions of Cape Perpetua

It was Sunday afternoon of President’s Day weekend as I drove back along Cape Perpetua from a friend and colleague’s house down near Tenmile Creek. We had spent the day plugging pre-cut logs with Shitaki mushroom spores and sealing them up with wax, an annual ritual of the local fungi-culturing enthusiasts to help bolster their homegrown culinary stock for coming seasons. It was an impeccable February afternoon, sunny, unseasonably warm and windless as I swept through the S-turns of the Cape, one scenic overlook after another. As I drove, I was struck by the number of visitors to this special place, nearly every wayside overflowing with cars, many parked along highway 101. Just 12 years ago I called the neighboring town of Yachats home, and although the Cape’s every bit as spectacular and special as when I lived here, the dimensions of human use, tourism and conservation have dynamically changed.
