We are a 56,698 acre site designated as a Biosphere Reserve in 1976 on the central Oregon Coast by the United Nations Man and Biosphere Program.
Our rare and diverse ecosystem includes the Salmon River and its estuary, a sandy littoral spit, densely forested uplands, a two mile basalt headland covered in native coastal prairie and a marine reserve stretching West into
the waters of the Pacific.
This unique land / sea connection, is protected and managed by a dynamic community of agencies, non-profits,
businesses, and residents in the surrounding communities.
