Oregon Wild Wednesday (EUG): The Oregon Dunes, a Living Landscape
Join Oregon Wild and Dina Pavlis - photographer, dunes enthusiast, and author of “Secrets of the Oregon Dunes” for an Oregon Wild Wednesday event!
Spanning more than 40 miles, the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is the longest expanse of coastal sand dunes in the United States. Stretching from Florence to Coos Bay, the Oregon Dunes attract more than 1 million visitors each year and is recognized for its unique habitat for many plants and animals amid the temperate rainforests of the Oregon Coast range.
Learn about this unique environment, why it is vanishing, and how stakeholders and volunteers are partnering with the US Forest Service to save this exceptional landscape.
Food and drinks are available for purchase at the event at Claim 52 Brewing's taproom. Doors open at 6pm, and the presentation begins at 6:30pm. Free and open to all ages.
