Join us in person and online

We look forward to seeing everyone again in person starting August 1. If you can't make it into the VC, we encourage you to tune into the OctCam, or take a walk along the Yaquina Estuary Trail. This family-friendly trail is adjacent to the Visitor Center.

Coastal photos by Newport artist Bill Posner will be on display in the former gift shop. This area will be used to feature local artists.

You may also want to check out Exploring Our Coast. This is a new resource we developed for people who are curious about our coast. It includes Found at the Beach, a guide perfect for beach combing. Also, Sharks of Oregon provides facts, pics and videos of the 15 types of sharks found off our shore. Plus you'll find links to Quests and a rocky shore tidepool guide developed by the Oregon State Parks Department.
