There are many events and activities happening this coming first weekend in March on the Oregon Coast. Family events, kid events, birding events and more. We are going to highlight two that we would enjoy and highly recommend to you.
The first event we want to attend is the Downtown Coos Bay Wine Walk. Starting at the Coos Bay Visitor Center, 50 Central Ave., from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, several downtown businesses are offering wine tasting while you shop. You can pick up a map and wine glasses at the center for a $10.00 donation that benefits various non-profit organizations each month. Friday, March 3 is the date for a flavorful walk in scenic downtown Coos Bay. There are restaurants in the area for you to enjoy dinner following your walk. You can call for more information: 541-269-0215 or 541-844-9494
The next event is at one of our favorite places, Charleston on the Coast, on Saturday, March 4. The South Slough Reserve holds a birding event the first Saturday of each month. SSR provides an interpreter who leads you into the Reserve to find the wild feathered birds that dwell within. You can call for times and more information: 541-888-5558, South Slough Reserve, 61907 Seven Devils Rd. at Charleston. There is a $1.00 donation per birder. The Oregon Coast is famous for a large variety of water fowl and you will discover many. The Reserve is a beautiful place providing natural habitat for birds and more.
