Event Details

Birding at Ecola Creek Forest Reserve

When: Tuesday, June 27, 7 to 9 am

Where: Ecola Creek Forest Reserve, Cannon Beach

Led by: Mike Patterson


Join naturalist Mike Patterson for an early-morning birdwatching walk in Ecola Creek Forest Reserve. NCLC was excited to help the City of Cannon Beach acquire the initial 120 acres of the ECFR back in 1999, which was expanded to a total of 1040 acres by the citizens of Cannon Beach in 2009. We’ll walk through this diverse forest of Sitka spruce, alder and hemlock, and western redcedar along the dynamic Ecola Creek. With his keen eye and ear, Mike will help you spot birds and identify and better understand the trees and other plants and animals that characterize this forest reserve. Everyone is welcome, from first-timers to experienced birdwatchers.


MIKE PATTERSON is a biologist, educator, and professional counter of things—birds, butterflies, flowers. “The goal is to take these disparate bits of data, stitch them together, and find some portion of the ecological whole,” he writes. Mike lives in Astoria and blogs about birds and more at


Walk info: We will cover about 2 miles round-trip on this walk, which will be mostly level with short hills. The route is along a well-maintained gravel road. No toilets on site. Please leave dogs at home.

What to bring: Water and snacks. Please wear sturdy walking shoes and dress for the day’s weather. Bring binoculars if you have them.


This program is free, but registration is required.
