Summer Field Ranger Programs

Come explore the Siuslaw National Forest with a field ranger!

Field rangers offer guided interpretative programs such as talks at campground and day use sites, guided hikes on some of the more scenic and popular trails, whale watching, mushroom identification and bird watching.

In the summer months, you’re invited to join field rangers at various locations in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area where they offer orientation, informal walks and talks, Jr. Ranger activities and regularly scheduled ranger programs.

Contact the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center or Oregon Dunes Visitor Center or check our Facebook pages (@DiscoverCapePerpetua/ @DiscoverOregonDunesNRA) for program schedules and details.
