Join us on the third Wednesday of each month, Jan – May, at 6pm at the Seaside Library.

Listening to the Land


Winter is a blustery season on Oregon’s North Coast, bringing us some of the most dynamic and fascinating moments in the life cycle of the coastal landscape. Rain or shine, our curiosity about the natural world around us remains strong.

From January through May, the Necanicum Watershed Council presents a natural history series to suit the season. Join us at 6:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month at the Seaside Public Library as we explore a variety of thought-provoking topics, from foraging for edible local mushrooms to plastic pollution to restoration economics.

The lecture series is free and open to the public. For more information about the programs check back here often, or contact Angie Reseland at (503) 717-1458.


Necanicum Bird Discovery Day


Necanicum Bird Discovery Day is our annual fundraising event, primarily focused on youth and celebrating the birds of our community. Held on April 13th, 2019 at the Bob Chisholm Community Center, “Bird Day” offers many activities for kids of all ages. Guided bird walks are offered in the morning, followed by bird house building, fish printing, and reusable canvas bag decorating.


The Wildlife Center of the North Coast provide a live bird educational presentation, and we’re often also blessed with presentations from local naturalists or wildlife photographers. We also have a silent auction and a very popular raffle of items donated by businesses in our community.

Join watershed council member Steve Warner, an experienced birder, on a free guided walk and learn to identify common spring migrants and residents of the Seaside area. The group will depart from the Community Center at 8am. Please dress for the weather and bring binoculars. The walk will be on pavement/sidewalks, and be no more than 1 mile round trip (most likely to the hospital and back)
