Yaquina Head for Teachers

Spring 2023 Yaquina Head Education Programs

There will be no Yaquina Head ranger-led programs (virtual or in-person) offered for spring 2023. Educators are still welcomed and encouraged to bring their students to the site for a teacher-led visit.

Accredited school groups who come prepared with structured, supervised activities are offered free entry to Yaquina Head. Teachers may choose to lead one of Yaquina Head’s pre-established programs or lead a program of their own. A wide variety of program supplies are available to borrow.

Yaquina Head LighthouseYaquina Head LighthouseThe United States Congress designated the Lower White River Wilderness in 2009 and it now has a total of 2,806 acres. All of this wilderness is located in Oregon and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service.  The White River rises in the high Cascades in western Wasco County, in the Mount Hood National Forest on the southeast flank of Mount Hood. The headwaters are just below White River Glacier in White River Canyon. Additions to the Mount Hood Wilderness protect upper portions of the river, while the Lower White River Wilderness, southeast of the Mount hood Wilderness and east of highway 26, protects a segment of lower river stretch.Yaquina Head TidepoolYaquina Head TidepoolYaquina Head TidepoolYaquina Head WildlifeYaquina Head Wildlife
