For Teachers

Education Programs

Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area offers a number of opportunities for educational groups. The 100-acre park hosts some of Oregon’s best tidepools, a 19th century lighthouse, an Interpretive Center and opportunities for birdwatching, wildlife viewing, and hiking. 

Throughout the year, classes may participate in a Teacher-led activity. From April through mid-June, school groups can choose one of our standards-based Ranger-Led Programs, offered for K-12 grade students.

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
