Take Flight in Pacific City

Saturday, March 31, 2012

Come to the Birding and Blues Festival in Pacific City! From April 13-15, you and your family can enjoy great music, fantastic scenery and the special beauty of our feathered friends.

Pacific City is the home of one of Oregon’s Haystack Rocks. Rising from the ocean, this monolithic scene-stealer makes the perfect backdrop for your family for Spring Break. Add great blues music and an understanding of the many birds that call this area home and you have one of
your most memorable vacations ever.

Tour the Clay Myers State Natural Area, check out the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge, paddle the Little Nestucca in a kayak, join the forest discovery walk, tour the Three Capes Scenic Loop and check out the wetlands restoration projects in the area. Bring your camera for the white
cheeked goose trip, the Camp WiNeMa tour, the Cape Kiwanda Marine Garden tour and, of course, the photography hike.

The Oregon Coast is an incredibly diverse and beautiful environment, home to a variety of
creatures, trees and plants that don’t thrive anywhere else. Artists, photographers, outdoorsmen, nature lovers and explorers of all kinds come to visit and wind up staying in this land of wild beauty.

Join fellow birders watching The Big Year, starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson in this bird-spotting comedy. Dance to The Purple Cats, The Sandy Saunders Band and The Strange Tones. Enjoy the raffles, indoor workshops and seminars and, of course, the guided tours led by
knowledgeable experts in birding, forestry and photography.
