Programs and Events

SEA Seminars

SEA presents a series of seminars taught by professionals from federal and state agencies each winter to prepare volunteers for service as wildlife interpreters. The seminars are open to the public on a space available basis. The seminars will generally be held at the Bandon Public Library or the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology Boathouse auditorium in Charleston on second Saturdays of January through May. Topics typically include aspects of local geology, oceanography, inter-tidal life, marine mammals, birds, fisheries and Native American history and culture. See the seminar details on the SEA Seminars page.

Coastal Wildlife Interpretive Programs

SEA wildlife interpreters are well informed about the natural history and a wide range of interesting places along the southern Oregon coast. During SEA’s summer season, interpreters provide on-site education at Simpson Reef and Coquille Point on weekends. See our Visitor Information page dates and times. 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.
