Coastal Wildlife Interpretive Programs
During SEA’s summer season, wildlife interpreters provide on-site education at Simpson Reef and Coquille Point or Face Rock on weekends. SEA wildlife interpreters are well informed about the area’s marine life, providing visitors with up close viewing of our fascinating wildlife through spotting scopes they have set up. They can also share information about the natural history of the region and a wide range of interesting places along the southern Oregon coast. Please go to our Visitor Information page for dates and times our viewing stations are open.Inter-tidal walks and presentations to school and civic groups are also offered with advance notice and by request. Over 22,000 visitor contacts each year keep our interpreters busy. Please contact our Wildlife Interpreter Coordinator or our office for additional information to help you make your visit to the Southern Oregon Coast a truly unique experience.
US Fish and Wildlife Service volunteers also staff Coquille Point and Simpson Reef. At Coquille Point in Bandon, when tides are high, they set up scopes on the point. When tides are low – especially when there are negative tides – they will be on the beach in front of Elephant Rock leading tidepool walks and protecting nesting birds and harbor seals.
